These are two salads we like to make at home during the Summer months. When it’s warm out, we don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen when we can be enjoying the sun or a drink on the patio. These salads are also great fresh sides for any BBQ; fish, steak, chicken, even burgers.
The first is a watermelon salad and the second, a beet, carrot and apple salad. I hope you’ll try and love them as much as we do.
