While it’s not quite summertime yet, the weather is starting to warm up, and a cool summer salad can serve as the perfect meal or side dish. This month, when you’re stumped on what to fix for dinner, we suggest you try one of the following recipes out in your Chandler, AZ apartment; when you find that perfect recipe, you might just want to make it all summer long.

Steak with Tangy Sauce and Watercress Salad by Bon Appetit

If you love steak, then it’s impossible not to love this delicious protein-packed salad. Starting with a base of watercress lettuce, Persian cucumbers, and mint leaves, top this salad with medium-rare rib eye  — or skirt steaks if you want something simpler — and a delicious vinaigrette.

Avocado, Orange, and Jicama Salad by Food and Wine

Are you looking for a fun twist on a side salad to add an exciting touch to your meal? Make sure to test out this recipe with a delicious Mexican flare. This salad’s main ingredients are oranges, jicama, avocados, cilantro, and lime juice, and the combination creates a salad that is creamy, citrusy, and crunchy, all at the same time!

Charred Corn Salad with Mint, Parsley, and Cilantro by Food and Wine

Bring together lots of exciting ingredients with this charred corn salad from Food and Wine. The corn itself has a fun new flavor after it has been grilled and charred. By adding mint, cilantro, parsley, jalapeno, onions, and maple syrup, you’ll have multiple distinct flavors combined in one salad that turn out to be surprisingly complementary.
