Cool Salads

Sultry summer days leave many of us looking for cool, light dinners. Salads can provide a great alternative to hot meals. They don't require much preparation time or heat.

California is known for its sunshine, beaches and healthy fare. Endive.com's California Delta Salad offers a taste of wine country by combining red and white endive with Chardonnay wine and grape seed oil. Redbook also gives salad-lovers some meaty dinner choices. Special sections provide dressing recipes and tutorials on what greens go together. For instance, green leaf lettuce should be served with light dressing because its soft ends get soggy. Romaine lettuce is perfect for Caesar salads.

Additional Ideas:

  • New dressings can add a twist to a staple salads. The Soup n' Salad section of Good Karma Cafe lists creative ways to make healthy dressings like Green Goddess, Lemon Dressing and Dijon Herb.

  • To keep things interesting, try an international salad from Epicurious.com. Their Guatemalan creations include a radish salad flavored with fresh mint leaves.




  • One ingredient that adds life to any salad is sprouts. SaladRecipe.com suggests using alfalfa, onion, garlic and clover sprouts for an extra kick of flavor and nutrition.
