Autumn is creeping up fast. Soon it’ll be all chunky knits and bowls of comforting soup. But whilst we still have a few more weeks left of summer why not make the most of it by filling your boots with some great salads.
I’ve been trying to steer away from the traditional British salad (lettuce, tomato and cucumber) for sometime and yet again, pinterest plays a big part in my culinary life. So today I wanted to share my top 5 favourite salads found via pinterest…
Chilled Watermelon Cucumber Feta Salad
This SCREAMS summer to me. Cool, refreshing, light and makes me think of Italy = perfect.

For me, a Caprese salad is perfecto. Simple. Elegant and Fresh. Perfect for when you’re craving pizza but want to eat healthy. I like to serve it with a chunk of ciabatta and some dipping oils.

Strawberry, Avocado, Spinach Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing
Strawberries in the summer are the best. But they aren’t just for snacks, smoothies and desserts – throw some in your salad.

Heirloom Tomato and Bacon Summer Salad
This recipe is actually from one of my favorite foodie blogs of the moment. I initially found it via pinterest so it still counts.

It’s Like plant nachos…
HOW could I possibly not include my ultimate favorite – Thug Kitchen? It would be wrong. TK have a host of great salads on the site but this one makes me want to do a big ol’ air punch. PLANT NACHOS BITCHES!
