This is by far one of my favorite salads of all time and it is so easy and affordable to prepare. This would make the perfect side-dish to any grilled meat and you could throw it on the grill right with whatever else you are cooking. A perfect choice for any low-carbers or anyone watching their caloric intake. Get the recipe here!
Oh man, these are good. The sweet and spicy pepper, the creamy cheese and the crispy, salty prosciutto create the perfect trifecta of deliciousness. And they can go right on the grill too. My only tip is to make more of these than you think you will need. They go extremely fast! Get the recipe here!
This flavor packed pasta salad is the perfect addition to any potluck or barbeque. There is just enough of the couscous to give it a hearty bite but is packed with enough vegetables to keep it healthy and light. I make this all time and am always asked for the recipe. Get it here!
4. Black Bean and Corn Salad (or Salsa or Side-Dish)
This is such a beautiful and vibrant salad that can be eaten as is or with as a dip with chips. It is super easy to prepare and goes great with hamburgers or barbeque chicken. It would make a fantastic addition to your Memorial Day gathering. Get the recipe here!
5. Strawberry and Arugula Salad with Goat Cheese and Candied Pecans
This is one of my oldest and most loved salad recipes. The combination of the sweet strawberry, peppery arugula, tangy goat cheese and crunchy pecans make the perfect bite. This pairs fantastically well with steak or burgers and is so simple to make. It makes for a great healthy side-dish for any event. Get the recipe here!
I sure hope you have a lovely weekend with your family and friends. Let me know what side-dish you make and enjoy yourself! Happy Memorial Day!
