At our Bayshore communities, we often have get-togethers in the summertime. Block parties, community barbecues, and pool parties are the norm for our manufactured home communities.
People have a tendency to bring the same traditional side dishes to these gatherings. Are you sick of the same old potato salad and baked beans? Well, we’ve taken the time to dig up five different savory salads that’ll have your neighbors’ asking for more!
Stone-fruit: think peaches. Nectarines. Plums. Cherries. These fruits are the centerpiece of this tasty and beautiful salad. It is colorful, sweet, and savory at the same time, and lovely to look at. Even kids will gobble up this salad.
With yummy homemade sweet toasted almonds and burrata cheese (a fancy name for fresh mozzarella), you’re sure to make a name for yourself at the next community event.
Mexican Chopped Salad
Feeling a lil’ spicy? This Mexican chopped salad will fit the bill just perfectly!
Paired nicely with either grilled burgers, ribs, or chicken, this salad is easy to make and is sure to be a real crowd-pleaser.
It calls for four ears of corn to be scraped off the cob, but if you don’t have time to do this, feel free to just dump a can of yellow corn into the mix instead.
Watermelon Salad with Feta and Cucumbers
Did you know that cucumbers are the most often planted vegetable by amateur gardeners? Well, if you are growing cucumbers and have them coming out of your ears, this salad will allow you to show off your gardening chops.
This unusual pairing of watermelon with feta cheese and cucumbers is not something you see every day. And with just olive oil, lime juice, and a bit of mint, you don’t have a heavy dressing that will cover up the coolness of the vegetables. Just don’t forget to buy seedless watermelon!
Saltine Cracker Salad
Now, you may think we’ve lost our minds suggesting that saltines go IN this salad instead of WITH this salad, but trust me when I say you’ll understand the brilliance of it when you make this savory salad featuring saltine crackers.
It may sound unusual, but it’s delicious and easy to make. It keeps well and goes great with fish or grilled meats.
White Bean Salad
Quick and easy to make, this white bean salad adds some protein to the salad world, and your low-carb friends will love you at your next get-together!
The trick to this salad is to marinate the purple onions in the lemon juice. It takes the edge off the hotness of the onion and blends it naturally into the other flavors of the salad.
