Spotlight on Salads with Foodie.com!



Gone are the days where salads are served as a starter or side, now they are taking center stage! With beach season right around the corner it was a natural choice to showcase some fresh concoctions that encompass seasonal flavors full of bright fruits, robust vegetables, and even a few surprise ingredients! Take a look at the collection above that I made on Foodie.com, it's full of great ideas for delicious salads but don't be afraid to try your own twist!
Some of my favorites from the collection include the Caribbean Grilled Scallop Salad, Thai Style Radish and Watermelon Salad and the Butternut Squash Pasta Salad, which may look a tad familiar!

Here are few of my favorite things to add into a salad that gives it an unexpected punch!
- Toasted Coconut Chips
- Dried Cranberries
- Use leftover chicken, turkey, or steak to top salads
- Pistachios
- Avocado
- Burrata Cheese.... mmmm Burrata.
