We have had several weeks of heat waves and on some days, the temperature has reached more than 32ºC (89.6ºF). I’m not a big fan of heat and prefer cooler temperatures whenever possible. During the hot days, I’m trying to find ways to keep myself cool and stay away from ovens and stoves as much as possible. That’s why we are mostly eating salads, fruit and everything else that needs just a little bit or no cooking at all.

Summer is a perfect season to try out different salad recipes as you can get most of the ingredients from your garden (if you have one) or buy fresh produce from farmers’ markets. You just have to be creative and mix all those marvelous fresh ingredients together and enjoy a healthy and fresh salad.

Today, we’ll bring you a list of 15 fresh summer salad recipes that make your taste buds happy!
