Summer is here. It may be a little over a month early but it’s definitely here. With summer comes lighter fare. I have dived back into smoothies for breakfast and hearty salads for dinner. My goal this summer is to spend less time cooking and more time enjoying, who’s with me on that?
I love a good salad. A good salad to me covers all the bases, protein, fat, crunch, and colour. Basically, it can’t be boring and has to satiate so we aren’t starving an hour later. A big beautiful salad should make you feel like you’ve had a complete meal without making you feel too full. My kinda meal, especially in the summer.
I normally don’t create recipes for salads as I usually just throw whatever I have leftover in the fridge in a bowl, but I promise that is going to change. Salads are life and I’m going to be living on them all summer. Let’s dig into this one shall we??
Not sure WHY, but I had a hankering for cantaloupe this week. Perhaps it was the summer weather or maybe I’d seen it peppered throughout my social but whatever the case it got me thinking about how to incorporate it into a salad. Cantaloupe is sweet without being overpowering. A perfect accompaniment to a summer salad.
