Friday Finds: The 5 Summer Salads I Can't Wait To Make

I have this super long list of all the things I hate about summer. The one thing I don't hate is that its salad season, you see I am the anomaly that is the fat girl that adores salad. Every since I was a youth I've annoyed my family by making "fancy" salads to take along to braai's. Keep in mind that to my family cous-cous was way to uppity for a simple braai. Last year I converted quite a few family members with the beetroot, butternut, goats cheese & roasted sunflower seed salad I got used to taking/making on braai days.

This summer I have 5 salads I'm dying to make for braai's and bring along's: there's a fruit salad, a potato salad, a pasta salad, a green salad and a warm salad:

{the fruit salad} Kiwi & Pear Salad with an Orange Dijon Vinaigrette

{the green salad} Spinach And Avocado Salad

{the potato salad} Bacon Potato Salad -- I'm sure this one will be a hit

{the pasta salad} Pesto Tortellini Salad with Asparagus

{the warm salad} Ode to Summer: Roasted Vegetable Salad

I think I might actually make the tortellini one for dinner tonight!
Happy Friday peoples
