I’ll be totally honest with you…sweet salads haven’t always been my favorite. I mean…while I am not a picky person I tend to like traditional sweets and straightforward savory meals. This means I like my sweets to be the dessert part of the meal for the most part. It’s way out there for me to have came up with a side dish that is completely sweet and yet definitely not a dessert. I made this for a bbq I attended over the weekend and everybody who tried it loved it-including me! It was refreshing and a perfect compliment to some of the heavier items we enjoyed.
Sweet Summer Salad
Chopped Lettuce (2 or 3 types if you feel up to it and really chop it up; my pet peeve is HUGE pieces of lettuce that aren’t properly chopped or torn apart-ewwwww)
White Peaches (peeled & sliced thin-look at the picture if you want to know how thin)
Kiwi’s (peeled & sliced)
Avocado (peeled & sliced)
Red Onion (peeled & sliced super, super thin-just a tiny bit of this for some bite)
Fresh Chopped Mint to taste
Your favorite dressing (I used a pre-made pear vinaigrette)
Toss mint with lettuce.
Layer all the ingredients in the order listed and then gently toss with dressing before serving or serve the dressing along side the salad for individual drizzling.
I hope you enjoy this…it’s a really special side dish! It’s really easy to prepare and can be made up for any size gathering. Isn’t it pretty?
