Recipe Roundup: Salads

Somehow, amid the craziness of moving and lots of traveling earlier this year, Recipe Roundups fell to the wayside. I think it’s time to bring them back!

Recipe Roundups began on PBF as a way to highlight past recipes that may have been lost in the shuffle in my four (plus!) years of blogging.

Since we’re smack-dab in the middle of summer, salads seemed like the perfect theme for today’s roundup. They’re cool, crisp, packed with nutrients and perfectly light. Below you will find links to some of my all-time favorite salad recipes that I’ve shared on the blog over the years.

Lots of Summertime Salad Recipes

Past Recipe Roundups include:

Recipe Roundup: Salads

Tropical Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

If you love a pop of sweetness in your salads, this tropical salad will be right up your alley. Fresh greens are topped with ripe summer berries and, if you’re craving more protein, it’s also delicious topped with grilled chicken or salmon. 

Chickpea Salad

The fresh dill in this recipe gives it a wonderful summertime flare. It’s great on its own for a light lunch or served as a side with turkey burgers or fish.


This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite recipes that I’ve ever shared on PBF! It simply screams summer!

Edamame and Black Bean Salad

This salad comes together in less than 10 minutes and requires minimal chopping. It’s perfect for prepping ahead and bringing to work for a flavorful lunch and also makes a great side dish for summertime barbeques. It’s always a hit!

Healthy Asian Crunch Salad with Broccoli Slaw

To keep this on the lighter side and add a punch of protein, this salad uses Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. The fresh broccoli slaw and sliced almonds give this salad its crunch while golden raisins and fresh orange slices add some sweetness to the mix. An added bonus? It tastes even better the next day so you can prep it ahead of time.

Fresh Summer Salad Recipe

To make this salad, top a bed of fresh spinach with strawberries, raw almonds, apple and goat or feta cheese before drizzling everything with the super-simple homemade lemon vinaigrette dressing. Yum!

    I read the title of this post and started singing my own “I’ve got that summertime summertime salad!” sooooooo that means two things: I’m excited about salads, and also my brain is ready for the weekend.

    I want to try this Asian salad! Also, I’ve been throwing strawberries in ALL my salads lately and just recently saw a recipe for strawberry salsa, love it!

    I love salad. And we’ll put pretty much anything on a salad. Left over taco meat, left over meat sauce from spaghetti, left over pulled pork…I think you see the trend 🙂

    Yum! These all look so good I’ll have to try them soon. I keep getting stuck in a salad rut, I find one I like and then make it for weeks on end. These are all really different than what I’ve been making and I’m excited to try them and branch out a little!

    Perfect timing! I’d been looking for new salad inspiration, and this is full of it! Now I’m craving a huge bowl of crisp lettuce with ALLTHETOPPINGS. 😉
