As the weather warms up here in Chicago and it’s finally starting to feel like spring, I find myself craving lots of fresh flavors, and cold dishes like salads or no lettuce salads that are easy to put together and taste like spring! 

One vegetable that tastes like pure spring? Lolli Bombs™ tomatoes from SUNSET®. Perhaps the most juicy and sweet cherry tomatoes I’ve ever had, Lolli Bombs™. They are bright yellow and truly add such a nice, bright, and juicy flavor to each bite of this bean salad. 

Packed on the vine, don’t hesitate to grab a pack or two when you see them at the store this summer as they make for a delicious ingredient or snack! 

Plus when it starts getting hot out often the last thing we want to do is turn on our ovens. Keep this super simple tomato and bean salad in your back pocket for this summer when it’s too hot to cook — you can feel good knowing it’s packed with fiber and plant-based protein and vitamin C. 

Ingredients for tomato white bean salad:

  • SUNSET® Lolli Bombs™ Tomatoes
  • White beans
  • Kalamata olives
  • Roasted red peppers
  • Fresh parsley
  • Fresh mint 
  • Lemon 
  • Extra-virgin olive oil 
  • Shaved parmesan or crumbled feta cheese
  • Salt and pepper 

This is one of those recipes that actually tastes even better the next day once all of the flavors have come together overnight in the fridge. Store covered in the fridge for 2-3 days. Eat the leftovers on toast, a pita, as a side to a main dish, or just as is! 

As a dietitian I strive to empower others to make healthy eating fun and to infuse flavor and enjoyment into what they eat on a daily basis. That’s one of the many reasons I enjoy partnering with SUNSET® because those same values are infused into their mission and showcased in the amazing produce they grow. You will always find their produce in my cart at the grocery store!

Summer Zoodle Avocado and Peach Salad

This summer zoodle, avocado and peach salad is bursting with flavor from in season produce and packed with nutrition in every bite! It’s summer in a bowl!

Some of the best (in my opinion!) veggies are at their peak of freshness this time of year, and what better way to enjoy them than to throw them all together a salad as delicious as it is beautiful!

Take advantage of summer produce by making this summer zoodle, avocado, and peach salad! Zucchini is in season in the summer and so are peppers, peaches, berries, tomatoes and more! Check out the full list here and stop by your local farmers’ market to score some locally grown produce.

To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of fruit in salads, but juicy, ripe peaches add a sweetness to this salad that perfectly compliments the different veggies.

Zucchini is one of my favorite veggies and goes great with all things pumpkin as evidenced by my recipe for pumpkin zucchini bread and this one for paleo pumpkin zucchini banana bars!

The Perfect Summer Salad Dressing

I find this salad tastes great simply with olive oil and vinegar, however if you are looking for something a little more exciting, here are a few of my favorite dressings:

Summer Salad Wine Pairing

This salad is the perfect for bringing to a summer get together, because there’s something in it that everyone can like. Pick up a bottle of a dry white wine like a Sauvignon Blanc. My favorite is this one from Francis Coppola!
