Looking for some salad recipes for lunch or dinner? These hearty salads are packed with fiber, protein, healthy fats and lots of veggies. Perfect for a quick summer meal!

Hi friends!

A few months ago I shared 7 Easy Salads For Summer. These are some easy flavor combos that we’ve been enjoying for lunches and dinners at our house this spring and summer. Since then, I’ve heard from a lot of you saying you really enjoy salads as meals during the warm months but are always looking for new ideas.

So, I rounded up a few of the salads I’ve shared on my site over the years:

Salmon Nicoise Salad

Pulled Pork Fajita Salad with Pineapple Salsa

Mediterranean Turkey Salad

Strawberry Chicken Spinach Power Salad

Spring Breakfast Salad

Steak Cobb Salad

As well as some brilliant and flavorful ideas from some of my blogging friends:

So there you go! 7 recipes from the original post plus 12 more ideas! The great thing about salads is they’re so customizable. Make them big or small depending on your hunger levels, swap out proteins if you’re in the mood for something else and play around with the toppings and dressings to make the salads unique to you! Hopefully you can use some of these delicious ideas for summertime salad inspiration.
