Salad is what I crave when summer time hits!
Once it gets hot I am not much for cooking, but for some reason my family still demands to eat. Go figure!
During the summer months I like to keep our meals on the lighter side, and the less it involves heating up my kitchen with an oven the better.
So for today’s #FridayFavorites I thought I would share 10 Mouth Watering Summer Salad Recipes.

One of my current favorites is Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad and Mango Avocado Salsa by Cafe Delites.
Okay, pick your jaw up off of the floor! Y’all this marinade is AMAZING, and the mango sets this salad off.
This is on constant rotation at our house, and no one gets tired of it…EVER!
If you are looking for a perfect light salad than look no further than this Tomato Basil Avocado Mozzarella salad by Julia’s Album.
This salad is perfect to serve up with some toasted crusty bread. It also makes a great side to go with some grilled chicken or fish.
It whips up super quick, and is a great crowd pleaser for sure! It makes a great unexpected pick for that backyard BBQ.
I love a yummy fruit salad! Like this Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad by Cooking Classy.
I love how versatile this fruit salad is. You can eat it for breakfast, or turn it into a healthy after dinner dessert. It also makes for a great dish to bring on a picnic.
The Honey Mustard Chicken, Bacon, and Avocado Salad by Cafe Delites is one of my husband’s favs! If it has bacon in it, he is sold. 😉
Y’all this salad is seriously delish. It is light but hearty, and keeps everyone in our house happy!
Another one of my summer time favorites is this Corn, Avocado, and Tomato salad by The Girl Who Ate Everything.
This salad makes the perfect side dish, or you can throw some shrimp or grilled chicken on it and you are good to go. I love the textures in this salad, and it just feels like summer to me.
I am seriously crushing on this Berry Orange Spinach Salad with Citrus Balsamic Vinaigrette by Yay For Food.
This salad is light, and makes as a perfect dish for a brunch or lunch. I love that I can throw this together super quick on a busy summer day.
Yes, this is another fruit salad recipe, but oh my goodness it is amazing!
The Berry Watermelon Fruit Salad by Fork Knife Swoon is simply delicious! She affectionately refers to it as a non recipe, and it truly is super simple. Who knew watermelon, some berries, and a little lime juice could make perfection?
If I’m craving something with a Southwestern flare, this Southwest Tortellini Pasta Salad by Tastes Better From Scratch does the trick.
This salad is a perfect for a Meatless Monday meal. It is another light, but hearty salad, and quenches that Southwestern craving!
Do you ever get a salty briny craving? Then this Tortellini Olive Salad by Norine’s Nest is perfect for you!
I have to be honest, at first this salad did not appeal to me. I’m not a huge salt person, and I do not like green olives.
But, y’all this salad is sooooo good. It makes a nice substitution to the more traditional pasta salads.
I am loving this Grilled Chicken Caprese Orzo Salad by Whole and Heavenly Oven.
This salad is so simple, yet so amazingly yummy! The olive oil and lemon vinaigrette sends this salad over the top. It also makes a huge serving, so it’s perfect for leftovers.
I hope you enjoyed these #FridayFavorites, and make some of these recipes for your family! Let me know which ones are your favorites. XO
