Best Summer Picnic Salads on the Planet

Don’t you love the easy nature of summer picnic salads? Me too. Bring them to a barbecue or picnic and they are sure to be crowdpleasers. Plus they are simply refreshing and the perfect compliment to any barbecue meal.

I can’t wait for summer here. It finally feels like it might actually be here to stay. Already I am planning some pool parties and casual summer days spent hanging out on the deck. There are always roadtrips and cottage rentals too. Many opportunities to share and make special picnic salads.
