Salads for Everyone!!

I love salads, but they can get super boring.  So I found a couple of new salad recipes and were super delicious.

To jazz up your salads, get creative and think outside of the box. Ingredients can be paired in numerous ways.  It doesn't just have to be lettuce and tomato dabbed with thick dressing.  Here are three colorful recipes that are easy to pop together. This time I tried to stay away from lettuce. 

Avocado and Citrus Salad

10 minutes of Prep time
3 Servings

·       3 Navel Oranges
·       1/2 Avocado
·       2 Tbsp. Balsamic
·       2 Tbsp. Lemon Olive Oil

Layer and slices of navel orange and avocado.  Drizzle with Olive Oil and Balsamic. Serve Immediately.

Barbecued Pineapple Salad

10 minutes of Prep
10 minutes Cook time
10 minutes Refrigerate
8 Servings

·       2 Cups of Pineapple
·       1/2 Cup Barbecue Sauce
·       3 Cups Baby Spinach
·       1/3 Cup Olive Oil

First start your grill. I used charcoal, but it's up to you. Grill the Pineapple for 5-10 minutes until you see marks on either side.  Then add barbecue sauce to the pineapple and allow to refrigerate for 10-15 minutes. Add the pineapple, with remaining olive oil to baby spinach, toss together before serving.

Summer Corn Salad

Yes I know it's not Summer anymore, but corn is still in season and this is a yummy recipe to incorporate leftover corn on the cob. 
10 minutes of Prep
10 minutes Refrigerate
6 Servings

·       2 Cups of Corn
·       1 Yellow Tomato
·       1 Red Tomato
·       3 Tbsp. Chopped Basil
·       1/3 Cup Olive Oil
·       Juice of 1 Lime
·       1/4 Cup Red Onion Chopped

Add all ingredients together and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes prior to serving.
