I tried a new salad recipe and it was so good!

Cheeseburger salad...a far cry from a juicy cheeseburger but was pretty darn good.


Please share your hot weather salad ideas

Tomato and Burrata Salad:

2 packages of cherry tomatoes, halved

1 burrata, cut up into pieces

Arrange the burrata and tomatoes on a platter and drizzle with a good extra virgin olive oil and balsamic glaze. Top with some fresh chopped basil.

Thanks for sharing yours, Anna!

I've never heard the term burrata and had to look it up Yummy for sure ! Thanks Jackie. It seems the caprese salad I order at restaurants. I'm going to try it.

Makes 2 servings
(Loving this with garden fresh basil and tomatoes)

Cubed avocado 1 small
Cubed mozzarella cheese 2 oz.
Halved cherry tomatoes 20 or so. Can also used chopped tomatoes
Pesto (a little bit goes along way)

Mix above all together

Plate and drizzle balsamic glaze and sprinkle with chiffonaed (sp) fresh basil and TJs Everything but the Bagel spice

Toss a handful of blueberries around.

If you feel like you need a few more calories, serve with a crusty sourdough piece of garlic toast.

Burrata is my favorite! Itís so creamy. I hope you enjoy it! I just made this salad for small immediate family gathering in my backyard and it was a hit.

pasta

Use bow tie or penne pasta, add tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, basil, grilled chicken, cucumbers and feta cheese. Sometimes it's a bit dry so I use a little of the Olive Garden dressing. Sometimes, I don't add chicken.

These all sound so good. The cheeseburger salad is so unique-plan to try that at some point.

Our go to salad is a Chopped Vegetable Salad. It's one to use whatever is available in the summer from the garden or to clean out the fridge. I like a variety of greens and then anything else available. You simply put everything on the cutting board and chop it together in small pieces. It's a good one for kids and adults who have trouble chewing (my dh). Dressing is your choice. I learned this from Tom Hanks on a Cleveland show.

I made this one last week and it was a hit and the kids liked it too! https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/foo...-salad-recipe/

The only change I made is YDD doesn't like arugala and honestly I'm the only one who loves it, so I buy a mix with spinach and argula to make everyone happy.

These other recipes sound great, I'm going to add some to my list to try soon.

I love this salad. It is almost like julietís salad except I use spinach and almonds. I rarely use a dressing but if I do it is a raspberry dressing.
