Tasty Picnic Salads to Help You Save Time & Stay Healthy this 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! This holiday commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, which proclaimed that the 13 American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America!

Independence Day — July 4th — is marked in the U.S. by patriotic displays, and is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, fairs, and our favorites — barbecues and picnics! To help you celebrate this holiday (and National Picnic Month), we’ve developed a few great salad recipes using Taylor Farms salad kits that 1.) will be a perfect pairing with your backyard barbeque or picnic in the park and 2.) take only minutes to put together, so you can save time to make time enjoying your company.

Head to your local grocery store and grab our Chopped Salad Kits, Organic Chopped Salad Kits, or our NEW Organic Mediterranean Chopped Salad Kit (sold at Costco) because these kits are perfect for holidays. Everything required is included; there’s no prepping, washing, or chopping — just add a protein or additional grain of your choice and you have a wholesome, healthy, homemade meal in minutes that your friends and family will love.

Here are a few of our favorite Summertime salad recipes that use our Chopped Salad Kits:

CHIPOTLE BBQ CHICKEN CHOPPED SALAD

Chop grilled chicken and avocado and place on top of Taylor Farms BBQ Ranch Chopped Salad Kit. Add in corn kernels and chipotle adobo pepper, if desired. Full recipe here.

 

SUNFLOWER CRUNCH CHOPPED SALAD WITH GRILLED SHRIMP

Grab a bag of our Taylor Farms Sunflower Crunch Chopped Salad, add the grilled shrimp — straight off the barbeque — and avocado, then toss with dressing, toppings, and serve. Full recipe here.

 

PALEO STRAWBERRY AVOCADO SALAD

Another delicious salad using Taylor Farms Farmhouse Bacon Chopped Salad! This one gets a little festive for the 4th of July holiday — adding a pop of color with juicy red strawberries and a strawberry dressing. Full recipe here.
