When I think of summer I think of the beach, sundresses, ice cream, fun, freshly squeezed juice and salads. Salads are a summer staple because they are very light, fresh and perfect for warm days.
Gone are the days when salads where simply lettuce, tomato, onion and chicken, Nowadays you can add all sorts of fun things like quinoa, sweet potato, wontons, fruit, fresh herbs and lots more. Today I am sharing some of my favorite salad recipes below:
Wonton avocado salad
Ingredients: Iceberg lettuce, arugula, fresh corn, cherry tomatoes, red onions, avocado, wontons, fried egg and my world famous garlic herb dressing.

Sofrito and soy marinated tofu salad
