Summer Salad Recipe Tips

I always love a good salad, but especially in the summer months when the produce is fresh and in season, I really want a refreshing salad.

A delicious salad is like a supporting role in a movie. It wasn’t the star of the meal, but it helped elevate the whole experience. Whether you’re serving a simple green salad or a deliciously sweet Ambrosia salad, here are some tips to help you create the best “supporting role.”

select season: In-season produce is not only cost-effective, but often provides the freshest, best-tasting fruits and vegetables

do it in advance: Salads can be made ahead of time. Sometimes you want to prep the ingredients and store them separately until it’s time to assemble and serve. Either way, you save time by finishing early and that’s a win!

color: Agricultural products come in so many colors! Before feasting on your mouth, use these colors to create a visual feast for you.

dressing: Depending on the type of salad served, you can offer different kinds of dressing options.

How many: Plan to serve ½-1 cup or 4-6 ounces of fruit salad and pasta salad. For green salads, plan on 1-2 c or 2 ½ -5 oz per person.

storage: See individual recipe posts for storage information and other specific tips and tricks.
