Healthy Salad Recipes: Just Add Summer

Complete the perfect summer BBQ with these nutrient dense, great tasting healthy salad recipes.  All you need is that summer sun!

The words ‘BBQ’ and ‘healthy salad recipes’ aren’t normally seen in the same sentence, but hear me out on this one.  Because as the sun starts to peek through the clouds, summer doesn’t feel too far away.  And as our attention turns towards those summer months then that one time of the year us men take control of the cooking draws near.  In essence, it’s the primal nature of the BBQ that appeals to us men.  After all, it’s about starting a fire and incinerating some meat, what’s not to like about that?

So is there really a place for healthy salad recipes with your summer BBQ?

In my opinion there is.  Because if your household is anything like mine when I was growing up, then Dad looked after the BBQ, while Mum made the salads and accompaniments.  Usually, the meat ended up burnt to a crisp on the outside and virtually still breathing on the inside.  On the other hand, Mum’s salad was always immaculate and lovingly presented (not to mention supremely tasty).

And while it was over to Mum to rescue the meat, we all tucked into those refreshing salads. Often it was the salad that was the best bit.  Even if it was to just cover the taste of burnt chicken and blackened sausages.

So in this week’s instalment of meal prep Sunday I’ve got 2 great tasting and healthy salad recipes.  And these aren’t your regular boring healthy salad recipes.  As a matter of fact, these are packed with tons of macros and micros to keep your meals well balanced while you’re indulging in all that gorgeous BBQ food.  Because there’s no need to feel like you have to abandon your meal plan.  In fact, the perfect BBQ can quite easily be incredibly macro friendly.

And with that in mind, why not whip up one of these awesome salads when the sun next pokes its head out.  Proof that the phrase ‘healthy salad recipes’ really does have a place in your BBQ-related vocabulary.
