16 Crowd-Pleasing Summer Salads

16 Crowd-Pleasing Summer Salads | www.kiwiandbean.com

If you have ever been on the receiving end of that “maybe just bring a salad?” email, then this post is for you. You know what I mean: friends invite you for a summer barbecue, you ask what you can bring, and the answer tends invariably to the salad end of the culinary spectrum.

And while no inviter dares specify what kind of salad they want you to bring, they surely don’t intend for you to show up with a clamshell of mixed greens and a bottle of ranch dressing. Right?

So when summer potluck season calls for something more impressive than a tossed green this list has got your back. These are the ultimate in crowd-pleasing summer salads: fresh, simple, flavourful and portable.
