15 Green Salad Recipes for The Summer

When the sun is shining and warm weather is upon us, it's the perfect time to enjoy the season, start up the grill and have a barbeque.  We all have number of recipes for marinades and rubs to coat our grilled meats, but there seems to always be a lack of variety with our sides.  We love the classics - macaroni salad recipes, potato salad recipes, coleslaw recipes - but we can't forget about green salad recipes.  This collection of 15 Green Salad Recipes for The Summer offers some of the best salad recipes and sides for the summer.  Light and full of flavor, you'll want them year round. 



Picking the right recipes for the summer is a difficult task.  You don't want to heat up the house or have anything too heavy that weighs you down.  Green salad recipes are the perfect summer recipes as a side or even as a main dinner dish.  Not only are they healthy, but there are so many different green salad recipes that have different flavors.  You can have an Asian seasoned salad, or enjoy a classic American cobb salad.  Green salad recipes don't just have to be the boring iceberg lettuce with tomatoes and ranch.  So, liven up your summer and try something different.   The best part about green salad recipes is that there is always something for everyone, even those picky eaters.
