End of Summer Salads

End of Summer Salads Collage
One of my favourite things about summer is enjoying light refreshing summer salads on summer evenings. If the British weather is co-operating we’ll be sitting outside, a cold bottle of wine on the table, the cares of the day slipping away as we relax in the fading sunlight. As fall approaches, it may be harder to eat outside but I still like to cling to the last of the summer by enjoying our favourite summer salads. Salads make such an easy evening meal. Many of the components can be prepared in advance, leaving dinner a simple assembly job at the last minute.

It’s not long now until the evenings begin to draw in, the air gets crisper and the leaves begin to turn. Join me in enjoying some of these lovely recipes, a delicious last taste of summer as we look forward to fall.

  1. Even here in California, the early mornings are starting to feel fresher. These look wonderful, especially the chicken and mango….

  2. Oh my! Not only do all your salad choices look delicious, but your description of enjoying a salad outdoors (chilled wine and all) is all the incentive I need to put a dinner salad on the menu for this coming week. 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration! ~Lisa 🙂

    • Thank you, Lisa! I always find salads so much more relaxing to prepare, but they are every bit as satisfying as something more complicated. Hope you enjoy them! x
