After all week of macking on Ben & Jerry's without a minute of exercising my stomach is a bit tired so a good salad would be perfect!
Have a look at these delicious salad recipes I've found for you this week and maybe you'll be convinced that salads don't have to be boring!
Fried Goat Cheese and Fig Salad
A recipe from Framed Cooks, a fantastic food blog that I've already mentioned here, here and here :) This week I will share with you three recipes from that inspirational blog because I couldn't decide which one is the best :)
I love fresh figs and figs with prosciutto make one of the greatest combinations ever. I can't wait to try this one! Click here for the recipe!
Shrimp and Watermelon Salad
Shrimp and watermelon on one plate...really!? I have to try this unusual combination - sweet and salty and tropical and soooo delicous looking! Get the recipe here!
Coconut Shrimp Salad
Yes, another shrimp salad :) I think that shimps and prawn are great alternatives for meat in the Summer, they don't make you feel so full plus they're healthy and delicious :)
The basis of the salad is corn, cooked shrimp, fresh parsley or cilantro, and a chopped up avocado with a handful of toasted and sweetened coconut flakes. Find the recipe here!

Okay, it's not a salad but it's made of fresh vegetabled so it counts, no?
This recipe from Kiss My Spatula is just perfect for summer - light and easy to make. Raw courgette drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice with crumbled feta cheese - this sounds divine!

Sunshine Citrus Salad
This has to be one of the prettiest breakfasts I've ever seen!
This recipe from My New Roots involves a selection of citrus fruits with a home made Ginger Bay Lime Syrup, but it can be modified anyway you like it using fresh herbs or spices.

Aaaaand for dessert....
I know, I know, it is not the healthiest thing but I just couldn't resist :)
Don't blame me, just read this: Chocolate cupcake, filled with a caramel-Snickers mixture, topped with caramel buttercream and garnished with additional Snickers and caramel sauce. Wow, that's what I call pure decadence :) Get the recipe here!
