It’s hard to believe August will soon be coming to an end. For some reason I view it as the last summer month even though fall doesn’t usually arrive until late September. Perhaps it’s just wishful thinking that September will bring cooler temperatures? One can only hope.

Even though we’re on the last leg of summertime, there is still plenty of summer produce left to enjoy. Between that and the fact that it’s too hot to turn the oven on, summer salads are on repeat on the menu in our house.

With that in mind, I’ve put together a round up featuring some of our favorite salads that include summer produce. From ideas to prep for healthy lunches, salads that are filling enough for dinner and options that hold up well for summer gatherings, you are sure to find something everyone will like. All of them are quick and easy to prepare so that you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying what’s left of summertime. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
