Main Dish Salad Recipes

Need a quick and easy dinner perfect for summer or really any time of year? I am sharing twelve of my favorite main dish salad recipes today. 

Main Dish Salads

It is summer! One of the great things about summer is all the fresh vegetables that are available.

Summer produce means that dinner can be quick, healthy, and easy to make. 

One of my favorite ways to make dinner easy during the heat of the summer is to serve salad. But if your family is anything like mine they want a filling salad.

They don’t want a side dish type of salad. They want a salad with lots of toppings and ingredients. 

You can turn all kinds of salads into main dish salads by adding meat and extra toppings, but it is always nice to make salad extra special and a little different. 

Today I am sharing some of my favorite main dish salad recipes. These are all perfect for summer.

Are these main dish salads gluten free?

Most of these recipes are also easy to make gluten free by reading labels to be sure the ingredients are gluten free, use gluten free pasta, and to use gluten free croutons or leave off the croutons on the recipes that call for them.
