5-Ingredient Salad Recipes

Ready for fresh? Our favorite 5-ingredient salads are full of flavor without a lot of fuss. We love salads in summer because they keep us feeling cool and refreshed, even when the temperatures are climbing. Plus, they’re easy to assemble for a simple lunch or dinner.

To make summer salads even easier, prep vegetables ahead of time so all you need to do is toss everything together. Many of our 5-ingredient salads are excellent after a short rest before serving, allowing the flavors to meld together and highlight the flavors of fresh herbs and spices.

Mix things up by adding salad to your list of must-grill dishes, using familiar classics like caprese or new ingredients like the firm, perfect-for-grilling cheese halloumi. Adding some fire ensures that salads are anything but boring!

Use these simple salad recipes to start or finish a meal or to serve alongside your favorite burger, and round out the meal with a refreshing summer drink.
