Seven Easy Side Salads for Any Meal

My go-to side salad is Caesar. This crunchy, refreshing Caesar salad features a zesty dressing that adds flavor to every bite. This salad brightens any spring or summer meal.

Shaved Fennel Salad

Some side salads don't use a bag of greens! This salad tastes better than it looks. Cucumbers, radishes, and apples give it great crunch. Fennel fronds provide a tinge of licorice to the aftertaste.

This simple Italian salad has homemade croutons with grape tomatoes, olives, and pepperoncinis. I serve it with focaccia or fresh Italian bread.

Zucchini Panzanella

My friend's grandmother taught me panzanella. Since I made the ideal vinaigrette, I desire it in summer. Day-old bread and zucchini from your garden work well too.

We inquired for the recipe after a caterer buddy made this salad for our work Christmas celebration several years ago. The surprise sweet-salty blend and delicious dressing please everyone.

Feta-Strawberry Salad

Arugula, strawberries, and feta cheese may seem odd, but one bite convinces.

The blue cheese, walnuts, and balsamic dressing complement the grilled apples in this salad. I serve it on my great-grandmother's pink Depression glass dessert plates.
