Five Must-Try Salad Recipes from Pinterest

Ack. It’s too hot out to even think about turning on the oven. Salads are feeling more and more ideal as summer progresses. Plus, they offer some variety and color to the typical week of chicken-breast-dinners. Not to mention the potential to be incredibly filling, nutrient-dense dishes. I’ve been browsing Pinterest for unique, not-too-complicated recipes to try this week, and these are the top five on my list:

This recipe intrigues me so much. The concept of a fruit salad with a hint of savory from the feta and red onion for dinner…it’s so different and sounds so refreshing.

I’m a sucker for tacos and anything taco-related. Plus, I have some leftover shrimp hanging out in the freezer and black beans and corn on hand. What a perfect opportunity to make something delicious. Oh, and have a mentioned that I love ANYTHING with ranch dressing?

Another thing I just so happen to have in my fridge! A delicious mango. I love working a meal around something I have that is perfectly ripe. Plus the colors in this salad are gorgeous!
