10 Summer Salads from Provence for Entertaining Outdoors
Summer is not the time of year to be behind a hot stove or pulling casseroles out of an oven. It is, however, the time to prepare simple recipes perfect for outdoor dining, whether at your table, poolside or the next picnic location. Provence is generally hot in the summer, some years approaching 40°C (100+°F), which means you do not want to travel far or cook much. These recipes work great as side dishes with grilled meat or fish. Alternatively, serve them as a main course salad with a protein of your choice.
Enjoy these ten (10) salad recipes inspired by the South of France over the summer months.
