You’ve been drinking watermelon all summer (did you catch our Beyoncé reference?), but there’s still time to enjoy this fruit! Toss with a zesty vinaigrette and spicy radish sprouts, and sop it all up. Full recipe here. 

Broccoli Salad with Bacon, Walnuts, Raisins and Greek Yogurt Dressing 

We all know the bacon-mayo Southern combo, but go the healthier route this week with this amazing salad idea. The Greek yogurt holds the crunchy broccoli very well, and the bacon is a slightly naughty way to treat yourself! Full recipe here.

If leafy salads seem too light, enjoy this pasta salad with a generous serving of arugula, basil, Parmesan and peat tendrils. You can serve the salad warm, or room temperature. Either way, it’s perfect. Full recipe here.
