Hi everyone we are back from vacation and I must say it feels great to be home! We visited New Orleans, Louisiana, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Nashville, Tennessee and had a one night stay at our new favorite lake in Hot Springs, Arkansas! It was a fantastic time for my little family, seriously we all had a blast! I will be sharing all about the interesting places and attractions we visited on our big family road trip (along with boatloads of pictures!) in an upcoming post.

While we were traveling, one of things we enjoyed the most was being out in the cool mountain air, but now we are happily back in our central Texas home and boy, is it humid and hot. So today I’m sharing links to a few of my previously-posted chilled salad recipes that I think are terrific dishes for extra warm August days. Also, this post is kind of a big deal because I’ve enlisted the help of some of my amazing blogger friends on this cool subject and today is my first official Recipe Recap with Friends post!

I plan to put together a few seasonally-themed Recipe Recap with Friends posts from now on and I’m definitely excited about it. My hope is to give you all an inspiring list of delicious suggestions to help you celebrate a season with a little more variety. I know my blogger friends inspire me plenty on a regular basis!

I’ve followed all of the bloggers who’ve participated in today’s post for years now, and I see all of their recipes as they are published through email and on social media. As I regularly read so many of their posts, I immediately want to share their links all over my social pages. But, I think all of that link sharing could get a bit cumbersome for people who follow me on my social channels! So, I decided to share a few links to their delicious recipes in a slightly more organized, seasonal post instead.

So enough about all that, let’s get to sharing these tasty chilled summer salad recipes… the weekend is here!!

Here are some oldies, but goodies chilled salad posts on A Little Fish in the Kitchen:

Still my favorite fruit salad evarrr: Ambrosia

This recipe lives in an older post from 2015 and these pics were taken when I still used my old point and shoot Samsung camera!! But, this recipe is still a hit at every family function we host: Lightened Up Broccoli Salad.

This is hearty veggie salad recipe I can actually eat as a main course with some buttered, crusty bread: Chickpea Salad with Honey-Lime Vinaigrette

This last recipe is one of my husband’s favorite chilled sides because it goes great with everything off the the barbecue grill:  Corn & Black Bean Salad with Smoky Honey-Lime Dressing

Now, please enjoy visiting some of my favorite blogs and some more chilled summer salad recipes to help get you through until that first cold front arrives!
