The summer is coming to an end, but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop. As the heat cools down, you can spend your time enjoying good food with your friends and family.
Normally, most people associate summertime food with barbecues and other meaty delights, but summer cuisine is so much more than that. Salads are some of the most delicious meals you can possibly have and our meal kits prove it. All you have to do is taste some of our summer salads for yourself. Our meal kit delivery service makes sure every healthy salad recipe is of the finest quality.
4 Summer Salads You'll Actually Want To Eat
1. Peach and Prosciutto Salad
This sweet and sour delight blends honey and vinegar to create a unique flavor of its own. The blue cheese and peaches work together to give a special texture almost reminiscent of a scoop of ice cream, but the walnuts keep things in the right crunch zone. To really enjoy this offering you need to cook the Italian dry cured ham along with the shallot and peaches. This gives the prosciutto a sweet aftertaste you can enjoy with leaves of baby arugula.

2. Spicy Ahi Tuna Salad
An exotic offering may come from Atkins, but that doesn't change how succulent and flavorful it is. Ahi, the Hawaiian name for yellowfin or bigeye tuna, has a unique flavor far from what you might find in your local grocery market. A beautiful contrast of vinegar and radishes combines the acidic and basic to give your tongue a taste of both sides, but the spices are what really makes this meal stand out. While the dish does include red bell pepper, it's the cinnamon and ginger root that truly give the meal it's outstanding flavor. You'll understand when you bite into a Ahi tuna steak thoroughly rubbed.

3. Scallop Panzanella
A unique offering from New York Times Cooking, this dish gives you bread and tomatoes rather the leafy greens most of our meal kits offer. The baguettes and Roma tomatoes serve as the main body of the dish, but the scallops add greatly to the overall meal. This meal kit doesn't come with a long list of ingredients, but that just means cooking the dish is that much easier. You won't need to do much to mix the ingredients together, but some light cooking can give the scallops the right warmth and texture to complete the dish.

4. Grilled Vegetable Salad
Nothing helps you celebrate the end of the summer like this harvest bounty. One of our most diverse dishes, this salad combines everything from Chinese eggplants to garlic cloves to Parmesan cheese. This meal is perfect after you've grilled your steaks and hamburgers. The grilled squash and red peppers will absorb the meaty flavor and create their own separate delectable taste. The Parmesan cheese even adds a certain crunch to the salad to top off the flavor from the assortment. To bring out the flavor, try to mix the red pepper and red onion together. The mixture gives the salad a spicy, sour aftertaste.
