Summer may be HOT in Georgia, but the evenings can get nice and breezy as we experienced last week! Nights like these are the perfect weather to lounge on the back patio or deck of your new Traton Home. Whether you’re cooking for two or for a large group of friends, we wanted to share some cool summer salad dishes to enjoy no matter what the temperature outside.
The back decks of several of our Traton model homes are perfect for grilling out. If you’re looking for a light and refreshing dish, try the Grilled Chicken Mango Salad! The chicken can be flavored and thrown on the grill while the salad is prepared with avocados, peppers, lettuce, cilantro and the mango cilantro dressing. This combination together is delightful and is perfect for a light and tasty dinner.
Who would have thought that grilling lettuce would be so delicious? This recipe is perfect for a snack while relaxing outside with your loved ones. Use your grill to char wedges of lettuce, add sauce and top with as much Parmesan cheese as you would like! This is a great snack that’s easy to whip up while you’re warming the grill for dinner.
This unique dish is definitely one for your guests to talk about! While the presentation of the meal makes it look tough to create, it only takes 15 minutes and is packed with flavor. Cool refreshing Georgia peaches and avocados are paired with a spicy kick from chili peppers. If you’re feeling adventurous, this is the recipe to try!
Taking a step away from the boldness of the last recipe, this one is a bit more simple but full of juicy flavor! This mix of fruit is easy to throw together and will be devoured in minutes. Add a hint of lime to bring out the most from these different fruits. This salad is great as a light afternoon snack, or perfect for a naturally sweet dessert!
This salad is an absolute must for any hot summer day! Mix cucumber and onions together with yogurt (or sour cream) to create a juicy salad. This easy meal can also be covered and stored in the fridge and brought out at any time.
These are just a few of our absolute favorite cool salads to enjoy in the summertime. At Traton Homes, we strive to help our customers find the home of their dreams in the best location. But we also love to hear our homeowners are truly enjoying life in their Traton home even after it’s built!
