We love salads around this house and to keep from heating up the kitchen, opt for them often during these hot summer months. There are so many ways you can mix up a great simple summer salad by adding fruit, nuts, and bacon.
Yes, bacon makes anything taste better, doesn’t it?
Here’s one we recently tossed together for a simple salad at home. Who needs to hit a restaurant for a salad like this. It’s so easy to do at home!
We keep fresh greens and summer fruits around for many types of recipes and it’s great to have them to enjoy this time of year. I love mango, blueberries, dried cranberries, pecans, and crumbled cheese of your choice. There are so many ways to mix them up with your choice of fruits and nuts.
The ingredients that went into this one:
Torn romaine lettuce
Blue Cheese crumbles
Add your choice of dressing and it’s a wonderful filling summer meal. I also change out the crumbled cheese from goat cheese to blue cheese and it changes the flavor from one to the other.
We had some leftover chicken so that went in there too for extra protein.
How about you? Do you love summer salads and how do you mix yours up for variety and using those fresh summer fruits?
