Cucumber Salad with Dill Vinaigrette

Rating: 4.45 stars
A fresh and light salad that involves no mayo or sour cream, so it is great for picnics and BBQs! Serve immediately or refrigerate overnight to let flavors blend.

Easy Cherry Tomato Corn Salad

Rating: 4.46 stars
In the summer, use fresh sweet corn off the cob. Saute the corn for five minutes in a skillet before adding it to the salad.

Broccoli Cauliflower Pepita Salad

Rating: 4.73 stars
This is my homemade twist on the traditional broccoli salad. Pepitas (pumpkin seeds) give this salad a nutty, chewy-crunch, and the light, bright-tasting dressing accents the hearty veggie mix. A favorite at picnics and potlucks!

Red Potato, Asparagus, and Artichoke Salad

Rating: 4.25 stars
Even people who normally do not touch asparagus (like myself and others I know), will find this an easy way to get those greens in. The oil will often settle to the bottom after chilled. You can either retoss before you serve, or leave it at the bottom and scoop around the puddle. Don't substitute white potatoes, they get mushier quicker and just don't have the same flavor.

Vegan Black Bean and Sweet Potato Salad

Rating: 4.76 stars
This is a great side dish using fresh ingredients. There are never leftovers!

My Favorite Beet Salad

Rating: 4.69 stars
Fresh roasted beets over a bed of baby spinach with tomatoes, avocados, onions and feta cheese drizzled with a balsamic dressing. You can cut this recipe in half for 4 servings, though it so good the next day too that I always make plenty.

Persian-Style Tomato Avocado Salad

Rating: 4.63 stars
A refreshing summer salad that is bit more substantial than a greens-based salad. It is unparalleled for taking advantage of the first succulent tomatoes of the season.

This is an easy salad that is perfect for a warm summer day.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Rating: 4.78 stars
This is a yummy summer salad that uses an interesting combination of fruits, vegetables and meats. Before you decide you won't like it, try it. You'll be pleasantly surprised. You can add an extra head of broccoli, if you like.

Thai Carrot Salad

Rating: 4.86 stars
I got this recipe from the cook at my favorite Thai restaurant in Cincinnati. His carrot salad was one of his most popular salads/appetizers, people would buy multiple orders to go so they could bring this as a take along dish to an event. This is even better made a day ahead.

The Best Vegetable Salad

Rating: 4.36 stars
This is a refreshing salad using all different kinds of vegetables. You can use whatever you like, but the main things that makes it good are the tomatoes and cucumbers. It is much like an Israeli salad. The homemade dressing is very good on it, but so is just plain olive oil.
