7 Healthy and Refreshing Summer Salad Options to Enjoy on a Hot Day

Rebounding from a hot summer weekend all I want to do is have a healthy, easy, and tasty salad. Many of us search online for simple recipes and the tried and true food and recipes sites turn up with great recipes, however, my new “go to” search is on Instagram. Chefs, home chefs, and many of us moms who are trying to reduce our calorie intake without suffering through only eating a bland bowl of lettuce. I am convinced if the salad looks pretty and beautiful it will taste 100 percent better. Here are the top trending #summersalad pictures on Instagram and a few of our own healthy recipes.
