Watermelon, Mint & Tabbouleh Salad

One of my favorite dishes in the summer is a tabbouleh salad. It is cooling, fresh, and light tasting on hot days while still fueling me to get out and do all the things I love.

Grilled Caesar Salad (Vegan, GF)

This is a healthy twist on a classic caesar salad. During the summertime, I am not a fan of turning my oven on. I usually keep things raw & fresh or I love to do my cooking outside on the grill! Grilling the veggies for this salad just enhances the flavors and warmth of this salad. I love how the char of the romaine lettuce and the tangy dressing taste together in your mouth.

Light Citrus, Kohlrabi, & Fennel Salad

This light tasting salad takes only minutes to throw together and is such a fresh and light tasting addition to any meal.
