Cool Summer Salads
It's the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. Kick back and cool off with these summer salad ideas. They are perfect for using fresh produce from your garden, local farmers' market or grocery store.
If fruits and vegetables are placed on refrigerator shelves, store meats on pans or plates below the produce to prevent meat juices - which may contain harmful bacteria - from dripping on them.
Wash hands before working with produce. Wash produce thoroughly. Wash produce before you use it, NOT when you bring it home! Fresh produce has a natural protective coating that helps keep in moisture and freshness. Washing produce before storage causes it to spoil faster. Remove and discard outer leave
