30 Main Dish Salads | Taste As You Go

Day 75 of Quarantine.

Connecticut started reopening ahead of the Memorial Day weekend. We've now rolled into unofficial summer.

With summer comes warmer days and nights and a waning desire to cook. It's time to start shifting away from adding comfort food meals to our weekly menu plans. Instead, I'm hoping to add more salads to the rotation... especially since the kids are into vegetables these days.

But I want to make sure we keep things interesting. Thank goodness, there are tons of recipes for main dish salads out there. These salads are heartier than your average green salad and are so, so versatile.

I could spend time doing internet searches for entree salad recipes... or spend time scrolling through Pinterest. But doing that would likely only result in decision fatigue. So I turned to my fellow bloggers and asked them to share their best recipes for main dish salads. Now I can share those recipes with you!

So if you're looking for new main dish salad recipes to try this summer... Keep reading!
