10 Best Summer Salad Recipes

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy.

From raw to roasted to grilled ingredients, this list of the 10 best summer salad recipes makes the most of the season with corn, berries, tomatoes, peaches and more.

Even though I eat salads pretty much every single day no matter the season, summer is always the best time of the year. There are just so many choices with seemingly infinite supplies of fruits and vegetables for the taking.

As far as I am concerned, greens are optional when you can transform a mix of pretty much any produce into a salad by whisking together a vinaigrette in minutes and tossing it all in a big bowl. And nothing gets better than that.
