Salads for Summer

Salads are the perfect summer food. Nobody wants to spend a long time in the kitchen over a hot stove when its 30°C outside. Besides, there are so many fresh vegetables and fruits available, it would be a shame not to eat them.  Just throw your favourites together.  (And remember, it is so easy to make your own salad dressing – Don’t buy the processed stuff..)

So anyway, I’ve decided to gather 101 salad recipes from my favourite cooking sites.  Hopefully, you’ll find something you like.  And, if your favourite salad is missing from the list, feel free to leave comment and lettuce know about it (I couldn’t resist the pun).
