ETG - Food For Thought

Not all salads are light and healthy, but most salads are quick and easy to make and, sometimes, that’s all you want during a hot summer day when cooking for a long period of time sounds like a nightmare. Food should never be a nightmare, food should be something that fills you with joy and excitement and this is the reason we decided to make a list of our favorite summer salads. Some of the salads included in this list are perfect for dinner, others are great for a light lunch and there are also some that make great side dishes or appetizers.

One of the many perks of writing for Eat the Globe is the fact that we get to test some incredible food recipes shared by foodies from all over the world. While researching for summer salads, we found some amazing recipes shared by food bloggers on their blogs or by foodies, here, on Eat the Globe. We love to be creative in the kitchen but we also love to see and test (and by test we actually mean try the recipe and enjoy the result) the creativity of other food lovers. If you are like us and trying new recipes is your favorite hobby, start with these summer salads and let us know which one is your favorite. Also, if you have a favorite salad you want to tell us about, join our foodie community and share your recipe with the world. Other foodies will appreciate that.

Cucumber Noodle, Watermelon, and Feta Salad from Two Peas & Their Pod

This salad is so refreshing that its picture should be added in the dictionary alongside the definition of refreshing. Cucumbers and watermelon go well together and the feta cheese is that extra ingredient that makes this salad so special.

Niҫoise Salad from YoYo, our foodie

Healthy but filling, Niҫoise Salad is a French salad that combines lettuce, potatoes, eggs, cherry tomatoes, tuna, green beans and olives. White wine is the perfect pair for this delicious salad and it shouldn’t miss from your table.

Shrimp, Avocado, and Roasted Corn Salad from Gimme Some Oven

If you want to make a restaurant-style salad at home, this is the best salad for you. The taste is amazing and the salad looks so inviting that we couldn’t say no to it and we enjoyed it more than a couple of times during the last week, and we think you will be tempted to do the same thing after trying it.

If you are skeptical about giving up your favorite potato salad, maybe the fact that this easy Roasted Potato Vegetable Salad is a one-pan type of deal will convince you to give it a try.

Cajun Potato Salad from Lemon Tree Dwelling

Adding a Cajun twist to a classic potato salad is a great way to mix things up a little bit and to add some new flavors to an already delicious and flavorful salad. Once you try this version of the salad you will never want to go back to the traditional recipe you used before.
