Don’t we all want to feed our bodies well but sometimes it just seems so …. hard. Here are my favorite delicious summer salad recipes!

Maybe for you eating well sounds too time consuming to plan out or just plain unappetizing.  I know I oftentimes have the best of intentions but sometimes have trouble with my follow through. It’s that pesky gap between wanting to do the right thing and actually doing the right thing.  Ha!

It certainly helps that salads no longer conjure up the image of a plate of wilted iceberg and one lone tomato. Nope! Salads today come with every lettuce variety, and everything from vegetables and meat to fruit and cheese. Salads are also a great dinner option when it is hot out, and a serving of veggies to boot. That’s why I complied this fabulous list of 20 flavor packed summer salads for you to enjoy!

Hopefully the recipes below will help close the gap between wanting to eat well and actually eating that healthy meal  😉
