With all the fresh greens and hot weather, Fisher Nuts knows that you are eating salads this summer! Everyone has a favorite salad dressing in the bottled variety, and many more of you I’m sure, have family recipes or your own go to mix to drizzle on lettuce, pastas or rice that makes your salads famous at BBQs and potlucks.

Fisher Nuts challenged some bloggers to come up with our own Summer Salad Recipes, and I created a salad featuring greens, a coconut milk dressing, garnished with Fisher Chef’s Naturals Sliced Almonds and Fisher Dried Cranberries. It was definitely something different than what I usually prepare for a salad dressing, and it is quite tasty!

Coconut Lime Basil Dressing

7 oz. unsweetened coconut milk
1 Tbsp. lime juice
2 tsp. dried basil

Shake all the ingredients together.  

To make the salad pictured above:  arrange romaine lettuce on a plate, garnish with Fisher Dried Cranberries, and Fisher Chef’s Naturals Sliced Almonds.  Pour prepared Coconut Lime Basil Dressing on top.

This is definitely a salad dressing I’m going to make again in the future, and the sweetness of the Fisher Dried Cranberries complement the the tang of the lime juice in the dressing very well.

I am disclosing that Fisher provided me with product samples and are providing the giveaway prize package.

  2. BLT sandwich salad – In a bowl layer ripped lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and crumbled bacon. In a small bowl, stir a bit of sugar, salt and pepper and some milk into mayo or miracle whip to make a dressing, pour over salad. Top with soft or crunchy croutons. Enjoy!

  5. My favorite summer salad has lots of greens–lettuce, spinach, lots of dark greens and reds–walnuts, tuna, dried cherries, and balsamic vinaigrette.

My favorite summer salad is simply a spinach salad with this Lemon Honey Dressing: 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon honey, & 1 tablespoon olive oil whisked together. It's great with a spicy dish.
