Salad Days

As we approach the summer solstice (aka first day of summer), and Father’s Day this year, spend some time outdoors—on a picnic, a barbecue, or a fishing trip! Pack a few salads (and not just green ones) to keep you cool and hydrated in a full day of sun… Let your inner child take over and create some playful combinations. Here are a few to get you started:

  • cantaloupe, tomato, prosciutto, basil, and salt and pepper 
  • watermelon, cucumber, feta, mint, and salt
  • chopped sugar snap peas with sliced scallions and crispy bacon and a vinaigrette
  • peaches and apricots with goat cheese and tarragon and a vinaigrette (and maybe a drizzle of honey?)

Truc (Tip): See my post “A Simple Vinaigrette” for variations on dressings, and “Salade de Couscous,” “Summertime, and the Livin’ Is Caprese,” and “Au Plein Air” for other salad ideas.
