Easy Summer Salad Recipes (Part 1)

Hey! I don’t know about you, but I am so fed up by the hot weather we’ve been having lately. I take a shower and my skin is still sticky. I don’t sleep as well, either from the heat or from the noise of the electric fan. And I’m worried about our pug dog, who is constantly breathing noisily from the heat. But what I do like about this weather is the food. Salad, lots of salads. The Husband is not a big fan of salads. He likes the typical Filipino meal of white rice, meat, and vegetables. But when it’s 40 degrees Celsius out and 30 degrees Celsius in, I simply do not picture myself cooking or baking in the kitchen. It’s genius!

Looking through my notes, I realized that I don’t have a lot of salad recipes. But I thought I would share with you the ones that I have. Let me know what you think!
