Celebrate with Summer Salads

THERE'S NOTHING FOR ME TO EAT!

I hear it a lot and I've also felt the same way.  You're invited to a cookout or BBQ, scan the options and realize there isn't a whole lot you can eat. So instead of feeling unprepared - take one of these delicious hearty salads with you or make a beautiful spread for your own summer get togethers.  You'll be happy you did because the recipes are beyond simple and full of the brightest flavors the season has to offer!
