My 7 Best Memorial Day Salads for BBQ's

What a beautiful presentation for a party. Love this salad!

Memorial Day and BBQ's seem to go hand in hand.

I've rounded up eight of my best salad suggestions for the occasion that will work for your vegetarian, vegan , and gluten free friends!

Whether you are the host or the guest, you may be making a salad to serve or to bring.

I love all of these whole food salads. They are easy to make, beautiful to serve, tasty and nutritious. 

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Asian coleslaw

Asian Slaw Salad- This is one of our favorites, and it is perfect for a crowd.
Easy to make and very tasty, everyone will love this holiday slaw classic. ( vegan 

Kale and Blueberry Salad- Kale is all the rage and it should be. After all, it's highly nutritious, hardy, looks appealing and holds up well in salads. I love it combined with sweet blueberries and this creamy orange dressing ( vegan) . 

Quinoa Lovers Salad- If you are looking for a salad to provide a little protein, then quinoa has you covered. This delightful salad is tossed with fresh spinach, oranges and roasted beets. - delish and Vegan

Skinny Potato Salad ( made with Cauliflower)- Everyone loves potato salad, but not the carbs! This tasty look alike can fool even the most discerning. Substitutes cooked cauliflower for potatoes

Waldorf Broccoli Slaw- Easy and delicious. Open a bag of broccoli slaw and mix with fresh apple chunks, cashews, and a few other ingredients for a lovely low calorie side. ( vegan) 

Green Bean with Balsamic Reduction- Balsamic reduction is easy to make and provides a thicker sweeter balsamic sauce for your green beans. Top with feta if you like. Vegan

Avocado Caprese Salad ( vegan)- This is the vegan version of Caprese Salad made by substituting avocado for mozzarella. Makes a beautiful presentation and there will not be a morsel left over.
