5 Summer Shabbat Salads

During the summer it has to be a pretty special occasion for me crank up my oven and roast something. And, to be honest, it’s really unnecessary. When so many fresh vegetables and varieties of fruit are in season, it is the perfect time to make a Shabbat dinner out of salads. The leftovers make a delicious Saturday lunch or light Sunday supper.

Here are a few of our favorite summer salads. Serve them with a good challah, bowls of hummus (or Israeli mezze and enjoy a very healthy Shabbat. If we missed any of your favorite salads, tell us about them in the comments!
