Summer Salads

It is officially summertime!  It’s gorgeous outside with bright blue sunny skies.  This year of course, is a little different.  I am really missing my weekly trips to the Farmer’s Market.  I miss people-watching with the bustling crowds, sampling tasty treats, and all the colorful fruits, vegetables, and flowers!

During the summer, a lot of us feel like eating simple, light and refreshing food. Salads are perfect and make for great lunches! Why not try a bowl of salad to satisfy those fresh and healthy cravings? Salads are super simple to assemble. You can use whatever you have on hand paired with your favorite dressing. I prefer a salad with a light homemade dressing. Try some of my favorite salads listed here and let me know what you think:

  1. Hi Manjula,
    Thank you for your recipes, your blog is my most trusted one on the internet…
    I have a question, I have been attempting to make refried beans without onion or garlic, and they never come quite right. My question is, what do you use to season the beans?
    Thank you, Didina

    1. Didina, traditionally Mexican don’t use any spice when cooking and spice them with salsa. at least when I make refried beans I use pinto beans soak overnight then cook in the pressure cooker for 35 minutes and heat the oil in frying pan and cook keep mashing yes at this point I add salt and ginger paste. it is a long process or use can beans.
