Side salads are the backbone of a great summer barbecue—they add colour, variety and fresh flavour to the main table, breaking up heavy servings of grilled meat. So for your next weekend meal, go all out and load up a paper plate or two with salads that celebrate the best of the season. Tip: Don’t be afraid to make extra, even if you’re only cooking for family or a small socially distanced group — many of these salads will keep well in the fridge (hello leftovers!).
