salad recipes

These cool and crisp salad recipes are perfect for summer. Whether you’re looking for a healthy dinner or summery side dish, these salad recipes are delicious, easy to make and easy on the wallet. Best of all, they require little to no cooking, making them ideal for a quick weekday meal.

A good way to make salads more affordable is to grow the vegetables and fruit yourself. Lettuce, tomato, carrots, fresh herbs and berries are easy to grow and will lower your grocery bill.

Also, salads will be cheaper (and healthier) if you make your own dressings and croutons from scratch instead of buying them. Salad dressings are really easy to make and can be made with common staples that you probably already have (vinegar, mayo, seasonings, etc.). Here are some homemade dressing recipes to get you started: 50 Salad Dressing Recipes from Food Network
