Happy Friday!!! Today I’m linking up with Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What for the Friday Five link up. Today’s theme is food.  Since summer is upon us, Im sharing with you 5 great salads.  There is nothing better for mealtime than a salad during the heat of the summer.  These are 5 great salad creations.

  1. Awesome Pasta Salad – I modeled this after a deli style salad
  2. Tabouleh – the classic salad plus extras
  3. Pesto Pasta Salad – I love Cafe Express’s pesto pasta salad… this has extra veggies
  4. Greek Pasta Salad – classic Greek tastes in a pasta salad
  5. Spicy Coleslaw – my most requested side dish

What is your favorite summer salad?

    Mmm, a good coleslaw and tabouleh- so tasty! I’m also a fan of this Asian broccoli salad I make with fresh ginger and garlic.

    I’ve always leaned towards things like pasta salad but this summer I’m gonna try to make things with more Veggies and less pasta. We’ll see how that works..lol

    love a good pasta salad but I’m also all about throwing in mixed greens with some fruit. Like strawberries, grapes or pears with a drizzle of balsamic dressing!
