Summer is all about fresh, light, and vibrant flavors. An easy way to usher in the new season and healthy eating is with salads. The flavor possibilities are endless, and you can go as simple or elaborate as you want.
I enjoy making homemade dressings, including a simple vinaigrette that includes only a handful of ingredients such as olive oil, apple cider vinegar, Italian seasoning herbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Drizzle the dressing over a simple mixed greens salad that includes fresh strawberries, sunflower seeds and other veggies such as cucumber, tomatoes, celery or avocado for extra nutrients and flavor.
Additional seeds or nuts are a great way to jazz up your salad. You can even add additional fruits such as sliced apples, watermelon, or tangerine to add some variety.
A few simple add-ins can elevate any salad into something fancy to create a luxurious experience. Pair that with a refreshing drink to enjoy outdoors on your patio, balcony, or at a simple picnic for a perfect summer meal.
S.Pellegrino Essenza drinks are refreshing and loaded with delicious flavors. They contain zero calories and zero sweeteners. Including Tangerine & Wild Strawberry, which has an intense aroma and a citrusy flavor of tangerine paired with strawberries.
Along with a fresh salad or fruits, you can pair it with sauteed vegetables, white meat, or a light pasta dish. Also, look for the Lemon & Lemon Zest as well as the Dark Morello Cherry & Pomegranate flavors available at Walmart. Order online or with their app for delivery or store pickup.
