Summer Squash Avocado Salad

This salad is a carnival of colors. It looks happy and has the perfect personality to attract friends and family to the table. You can also make enough to have leftovers the next day without running the risk of coming home tired and eating the first thing you find…sabotaging your plans to eat light in the summer.

Kale Avocado Salad with Roasted Carrots

Here’s another super tasty salad that gets points for presentation, whether it’s presented at home or at an outside gathering. The deep green of the kale along with the yellowgreen of the avocado and the carrots (which can range in color from orange to purple) doesn’t need any sophisticated decoration to dress it up. Garbanzos — a bean that’s great in summer salads — accent this salad.

Nopales and Avocado Salad

This salad evokes Mexico with more than one ingredient. Avocado, lime, cilantro, and cactus paddles are the stars of this dish. If you’ve avoided buying cactus paddles because you don’t know how to prep them, this recipe presents you with an opportunity to confront your fear — and be rewarded for your efforts with a delicious salad. The aroma and character of this salad make us think of the other side of the border — maybe it will even make for good conversation around the table.
