It’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!
1) Glass Noodle Salad with Cucumber and Sesame
3) Sesame Orange Napa Cabbage Salad
5) Tangy Cucumber Salad with Chicken and Peanuts
7) Sesame Black Bean Salad with Red Peppers
8) Tuna and White Bean Salad with Tahini and Avocado
9) Pesto-Dressed Three Bean Salad

What a nice variety of salads – there is surely a salad for everyone at Fiesta Friday. Thanks for bringing these to the party 🙂
Thanks! I’ve got a potluck at church tomorrow, so I’d better get busy!
Rainbow potato salad, I’ll try it tomorrow for lunch 🙂
I’m glad to hear it! Enjoy!
I will take number 5 & 8. 😉 Thanks for sharing these. Happy FF. 🙂
Good choices! Number 5 is one of my all-time favourite salads. I will pass up dessert for more of it!
Perfect! After all the grilled meat last weekend, I really just want a bowl of salad! 🙂
Amen to that!
That Rainbow Potato Salad looks especially good! I’m ready for salad season too. My personal favorite is my Sweet & Salty Watermelon Salad. Thanks for sharing with us at the Merry Monday party. ! I’m looking forward to your newest additions to the party next week!
