When I think of summer, my mind goes straight to recipes that are quick and easy to make. No stove, {preferably} no grill, and not a ton of work involved. Working ‘part-time’ 35+ hours a week, I’m already tired at the end of my day, and the hot summer heat here in Southern Arizona doesn’t make it any better.

I crave meals that are cool and refreshing, and salads fit the bill perfectly. In fact, July is the perfect month for the 12 Bloggers group to bring you 12 fresh and delicious summer salads. All of the salads use 12 ingredients or less, so no need to go running to the store scrambling to find a ton of ingredients missing from your pantry.
