Summertime Sides and Salads


Summer is the time for great salads and fresh veggies. We've chosen some of the best of the season.
Marcella's Blue Ribbon Potato Salad
One of the best potato salad recipes you will ever find!
Fresh Fruit Salad
A wonderful fresh fruit salad that friends and family can enjoy!
Caprese Salad
Caprese salad is one of the simple pleasures of summer. Ripe, garden-fresh tomatoes and high-quality mozzarella cheese are key, as is the best, fruitiest extra-virgin olive oil you can find. The tomatoes' great flavor pops when properly seasoned. Happy summer!
Thai Peanut Noodle Salad
Who doesn’t like this Thai-inspired salad? With a food processor, it’s easy to make — and the noodles and chicken are cooked ahead of time to make it easy to put together.
Tangy Calico Slaw with Yogurt Dressing
A new twist on an old favorite, this slaw is made with red and green cabbage, tart apples and sweet carrots.
Kimchi Grilled Corn on the Cob
The spicy sour taste of Korean kimchi plays delightfully off of the sweet crunch of freshly grilled corn on the cob. For something a little adventurous or exotic, this is a fresh spin on an old favorite!
Black Bean and Jicama Salad With Cumin Vinaigrette
Offer this savory salad of tender black beans and crunchy jicama to guests and family at your next cookout. A cumin-Dijon vinaigrette adds tang and flavor to accompanying red onions, bell peppers and corn.
Rainbow Mexican Salad
Colorful and flavorful ingredients like tomatoes, Cheddar cheese, avocado, corn and olives are easily arranged to make a "rainbow" salad that gets a delicious crunch from crumbled cheese crisps. It makes a beautiful presentation and is ready in just 30 minutes.
Salsa Verde Grilled Chicken Salad
If you're looking for a satisfying main-dish salad, try this refreshing version featuring marinated grilled chicken atop a hearty salad of mixed greens, oranges and avocado.
Grilled Potato Bake
A tasteful blend of color that makes for a perfect side dish.
Santa Fe Smokin' Rice Salad
This boldly flavored rice salad is a hit any time of year. If you can find bottled creamy garlic-cilantro salad dressing, use it here. Otherwise, we explain how to make your own dressing.
Wild Thyme Summer Salad
This chicken and rice salad is a perfect main course for a summer day when flavor is key but time in the kitchen is not!
Grilled Steak Salad
A cold grilled steak salad makes a lovely summer meal. You can purchase the packaged mixed greens or mix your own.
Sauteed Cherry Tomatoes with Herbs
Try a handful of chopped basil or thyme. A splash of vinegar adds tang, too.
Thai Chicken Fettuccine Salad
This sweet and spicy salad features cooked chicken and fettuccine coated with a kicked-up combination of  picante sauce, peanut butter, honey, orange juice, soy sauce and ginger, served on mixed salad greens topped with chopped red pepper and cilantro.
Picnic Celery & Potato Salad
A few surprises in the dressing, like cream of celery soup, carry this potato salad to new and delicious heights.
Coleslaw with Ginger and Carrots
An all-time favorite for picnics and great for serving with fresh, summer seafood such as lobster and clams. The light, mayo-free dressing makes this a winner!
Salsa Verde Corn & Bean Salad
This colorful and snappy salad features prepared salsa verde mixed with red pepper, whole kernel corn, black beans, mango and cilantro.
Black and White Bean Salad
Vegetable juice is the secret ingredient in this easy-to-make bean salad featuring an assortment of canned beans, chopped peppers, onion and garlic.
Nutty Citrus Quinoa
Almonds and pinenuts enhance the nutty flavor of quinoa in this easy side dish — the grapefruit adds a happy zing.
Bangkok Rice And Shrimp Salad
While we love this salad just the way it is, if you can find Thai basil, it’s even better. Coconut milk is especially delicious with rice and when paired with shrimp is a surefire winner!
