EASY summer salads

I don’t know about you, but when its hot outside in the summer I find it difficult to eat a heavy meal so I tend to eat a lot of salads. These three salads have been my go to lately so I thought I would share them with you!

Watermelon + Cucumber + Feta Salad

+ 1/2 watermelon cubed

+ 1 cucumber cubed

+ feta cheese (I prefer cubed over crumbled)

+ 1 red onion finely chopped

+ 2 tbsp olive oil

+ 1 lime squeezed

+ mint to taste

Toss all ingredients together and top with mint, olive oil + lime juice – so so easy and probably the freshest salad you will ever taste!

Cajun Mushroom Caesar Salad

+ 2 cups white mushrooms whole

+ 1 tbsp Cajun spice

+ pinch of salt

+ 1 tbsp olive oil

+ sprinkle of pepper

+ mixed greens (I like romaine, arugula + spinach mix)

+ 1 cup whole wheat croutons

+ 2 tbsp Caesar dressing

  1. Put mushrooms, oil + spices in a frying pan on medium heat. Cook until a little crispy
  2. Add all ingredients on top of mix greens + toss

This is a vegetarian version of a Cajun chicken Caesar and it is SO good! You can serve as a salad or toast up your favourite pita bread and have mushroom Caesar in a pita wraps!

Asian Noodle Cabbage Salad

+ 1 package ramen noodles

+ 1 cabbage, shredded

+ 1 bunch green onions, sliced thin

+ 1/2 cup slivered almonds

+ 1/4 cup peanuts

+ 2 tbsp sesame seeds

Dressing

+ 1/2 cup light olive oil

+ 1/2 cup white sugar

+ 1 ramen noodle seasoning package

+ 1/4 cup plain white vinegar

  1. Put slivered almonds, peanuts + sesame seeds on a pan – broil until toasted (this happens quickly so make sure to monitor closely)
  2. Mix olive oil, sugar, ramen noodle seasoning + white vinegar in a bowl
  3. Break up noodles + add toasted nuts over your shredded cabbage. Pour dressing over + toss!

This salad is one of my childhood favourites, my mum would always make this in the summer when we would have BBQs.
