Appetites decrease during hot summer days because people don’t feel like eating hot meals. Salads make the perfect dish for either lunch or dinner because they are fresh and light! Also, your body needs more energy on hot days and salads help meet your daily nutrition needs.

Our hearty Cobb Salad with Goat Cheese and Vinaigrette, accompanied by a crusty loaf of bread or fruits and vegetables on the side can be served as a main course.

Here are some other fresh salads to serve on warm summer days!
