A great side dish is the secret to a complete and satisfying meal — and the best sides are the ones you can whip up without a recipe. Because a simple side salad can pair with just about anything you’re eating, don’t discriminate on your leafy greens, feel free to swap in your favorite lettuce base, be it spinach, kale, or romaine. Side salads are the easiest ways to add vegetables to your meal and round things out. They’re heavy on the vegetables, dressed in light vinaigrettes that embrace good fats like olive oil, and are dotted with wholesome ingredients.

 

Tuscan Panzanella

It’s a salad that won’t overpower your summer bbq food or, really, anything so don’t hesitate it to serve it alongside the staples.  It’s a one-bowl affair, as the white balsamic vinaigrette is whisked together in with the arugula, red onion, heirloom tomatoes, olives, and caperberries.

 

Chopped Salad

A simple healthy recipe. An elemental blend of vegetables. Arugula, baby gem, cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, peppadew peppers, pickled shallots, crumbled gorgonzola, and pancetta. It’s just a handful of ingredients, but together they’re more than the sum of their parts.

Caesar

It’s the most beloved genre of salad out there, so lettuce run with it. Crisp, crunchy lettuce that leaves your mouth feeling refreshed as you eat. A liberal portion of slightly salty parmesan cheese playing with the faint hints of baby gem lettuce, and ciabatta croutons.

 

Summer cookouts certainly hold a special place in our hearts. As we all get giddy thinking about the obscenely awesome amount of time we’ll be spending at parks, in backyards, and by the pool. With summer on the horizon, these special times call for the best side salads. There’s nothing worse than building a beautiful salad only to find the first bite completely flavorless. Add in salmon, jumbo shrimp, tenderloin, grilled or cajun chicken to save your bland salad. It can transform a dull, flavorless salad into something balanced and bright, and it can help elevate flavors so they shine. Why spend time in a hot kitchen when you could savor every second of summer goodness?
