Healthy Salads for LABOR DAY

It's Labor Day weekend! Finally!! Although this long weekend marks the end of summer, Labor Day comes as a welcome break before we dive into our busy fall schedules.

I don't know about you, but I plan to take full advantage of our extra day off, spending time with my family and enjoying the warm weather, since it will be gone before we know it.

And knowing that Labor Day usually means a big ol' barbecue out back, with beers and sugary desserts, I wanted to leave you with some healthy inspiration. If your day involves a potluck, think about bringing one of these nutritious and whole-food recipes. Your guests will thank you later.

Here are my favorite Salad Recipes for Labor Day!

  1. I love a good salad and you’ve got a nice list here. Thanks for reminding me to get out the quinoa more often 🙂 Labor Day weekend for us is full of being out and about in our city — the weather is gorgeous and there are many fun events scheduled. Eating out more than in this year!
