9 non-lettuce salads you’ll love for summer

9 non-lettuce salads you'll love for summer! | www.ricottaandradishes.com

Hello, summer!  If there’s one dish you can’t go a day without during the warmer months, it’s salad.  The bright flavours, lightness and crunch make salads a natural choice for barbecues, picnics and al fresco dinners.

Lettuce and other greens are great, of course, but sometimes it’s nice to look beyond the leaf and add a few chunkier salads to your repertoire.  Think loads of chopped vegetables and fruit, fresh herbs, nuts, seeds and of course a bright dressing to tie it all together.

Here are 9 non-lettuce salads to get you inspired this season.  Try a few this weekend for something new!
