One of my favorite meals to make and enjoy during these sizzling months is a salad. The weather lends itself to the perfect salad enjoyment conditions. A– you get to have a healthy, refreshingly crisp, hearty meal almost instantly. B– you get to bask in outdoor cooking (which beats indoor meal-making any day).
For folks who enjoy a little tang in their meals, this Mandarin and Cranberry Salad offers an instant refreshment on a hot day.
For folks who want a little bit more substance in their meals, and who enjoy walking on the southwest side, this Santa Fe inspired salad is a must try.
Both meals are very filling on their own, and super nutrient ready. Did I mention how incredibly quick these two meals are easy to make? Go on, fire up that grill and enjoy some outdoor cooking and eating!
