10 Crowd-Pleasing Salads to Kick Off Summer

10 Summer Salads | Swirls and Spice  #glutenfreeIt’s salad season! Picnics, barbecues, and al fresco meals are great opportunities to create something fresh and inviting.  We just returned from a weekend away at family camp where I was blessed to have someone else take care of all our family’s meals for a few days.  The food at camp was made well too.  Feta cheese even made an appearance in the pasta salad, which is quite a step up from the camp food I recall back in the day.

Returning to my own kitchen is something I enjoy too, since I can make a salad any way I please.  At the moment, my body would like a break from all the carbs and white flour we were fed over the weekend, delicious as it was.  Here are ten of our favourite gluten-free salads that will be making appearances in the weeks ahead.

May all your salads this summer be as tasty and refreshing as these!
