Celebrate Labor Day and the end of summer with one of these delicious and crowd pleasing summer salads including pasta salads, quinoa salads, Caprese salads, and more!

Well, that’s a wrap! Summer is unofficially O-V-E-R in a couple of weeks!  Don’t worry – I said, unofficially! You’ve still got time to hit the beach, hang by the pool, or head to the park!  But it’s also time to start planning one last summer bash before it’s back-to-school, back-to-work, and back-to-busy routines. 

If you’re getting ready to throw, or attend, a fabulous Labor Day BBQ to say good-bye to summer, I’m sure you’ve got the hot dogs and burgers covered.  So let’s talk about what to serve with them!  I’m all about a good side salad during a barbecue.  Especially when it’s quick, easy, loaded with delicious and fresh ingredients, and can feed a crowd!  If you’re looking for a new salad to make, or take, to your Labor Day BBQ, there are plenty of ideas with these 10 simple salad recipes.

I’m sharing everything from pasta salads, quinoa salads, green salads, and even a fruit salad or two for something a little sweeter. So many of these salads have been on repeat in our house.  They’re perfect for summer and Labor Day gatherings, but they go way beyond the season as great side dishes or meal prep ideas!
