I love salad, but I think they always taste fresher in the summer.  From regular salad to tuna salad, macaroni and potato salad, there’s always a great new side dish to take to summer cookouts, potlucks, or to just get together with friends.  Most salads are super simple to make, and take very little time, making it easier to spend more quality time with your family and friends, rather than in the kitchen.  I compiled a great list of 56 summer salads that I’m sure you’ll love!
