Adding a ton of summer’s most fresh produce into a big salad is my favorite thing to do! This Summer Garden Salad has fresh corn straight off the cob, crisp cucumbers, roasted beets and more layered over a bed of lettuce and topped with a zippy dressing. Doesn’t get much better than that!

Summer produce has all the perfect flavors to add into this gorgeous Summer Garden Salad. Fresh corn, radishes, and cucumbers give that refreshing crunch. While roasted beets are soft and earthy, and the sun dried tomatoes add a nice tangy sweetness to round it all out.
