Simple Summer Salads

Salads sometimes get a bad reputation. But for those people who think of salads as just some limp lettuce, you probably aren’t making the right kind of salad! A lot of different types of salads can be tasty, healthy, and (believe it or not) filling. Now not every meal you eat needs to be a salad, and not every type of salad is healthy, but these four salads are a great way to fill up on a warm summer day. They don’t require a lot of ingredients so they won’t break the bank, but they will leave you full. Enjoy!
