12 Salad + Side Dishes For Memorial Day Weekend

May 24, 2017

I can’t believe Memorial day weekend is already upon us!  Today I wanted to share some great side/salad recipes for any cookouts or parties this weekend.

For some reason that I still can’t figure out this Asparagus Caprese Salad was somehow deleted from my blog.   I had 4 posts from that week that just disappeared or were deleted somehow. My apologies to all of you who reached out trying to find it.  I wanted to repost it and share 12 other salads that would be great for this weekend.

A S P A R A G U S  C A P R E S E  S A L A D

1 bunch asparagus, washed and ends trimmed

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

1 container small mozzarella balls, halved

pesto

fresh basil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Wash asparagus, trim ends, then place on a baking sheet.   Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper.  Roast about 15 minutes.  Meanwhile in a large bowl combine, halved cherry tomatoes, halved mozzarella balls and about 1 cup of pesto and mix all together.  Add in about 2 tablespoons fresh sliced basil.  Place cooked asparagus on a plate and top with Caprese salad.
