5 Easy Summer Salad Recipes

 

This post is a collaboration with Woolworths

I love a good salad as a side to just about any meal during the summer, so I thought I would put together 5 of my favourite salad recipes and share them with you. I went with salads that are super easy to pull off by using a salad packet base from Woolworths and a few extra ingredients to jazz them up. Now, feel free to add any extra ingredients to these salads recipes or exclude any ingredients you don’t like.

Cobb Salad 

Not only does this salad look amazing, but you can also serve it on it’s own as a meal. Feel free to mix this recipe up and serve with all your favourite ingredients laid out on a tray.
