End-of-Summer Salads

Labor day weekend; a sure sign that summer is coming to a close and fall is right around the corner. Now don’t get me wrong, fall is packed with some wonderful things. Fall is a season of college football, falling leaves, crisp air and hearty root vegetables. But it’s hard to believe that the beautiful produce of summer is going away until next spring. So enjoy these end-of-summer salads of beautiful summer veggies and greens while you can before it’s too late.

Caprese Salad with Burrata and Mint
A classic caprese salad with a twist; burrata and mint! But if you’re a fan of the classic caprese, you can easily swap out the mint for basil and the burrata for mozzarella to have that one-of-a-kind flavor combination. Check out the recipe here!

Quinoa, Cauliflower and Arugula Salad
If I’ve learned one thing this summer, it is that I love salads with quinoa! The nutritious grain is mild in flavor, but really enhances a salad with an acidic and bright vinaigrette. This salad is packed with veggies, greens, and a generous portion of protein. Enjoy making this summer salad now or any time of the year. Check out the recipe here!

Sugar Snap Pea and Radish Salad
A crisp and crunchy salad with an acidic and peppery kick, this pea and radish salad is packed with complexity. The creamy yogurt vinaigrette rounds out the dish and really makes the salad unique. The egg is optional, but a great addition if you’re craving some extra protein or serving this salad for your next brunch get-together. Check out the recipe here!

Charred Corn Salad with Creamy Lime Dressing
The sweet, crunchy corn and creamy, lime dressing is the perfect combination for a summer salad. Plus, it’s great on its own or as a side dish for a summer barbecue. Check out the recipe here.
