I’m in love with smoked paprika! I’ve been using it like crazy lately! I recently started adding it to salad dressings and it really does improve any kind of salad! Also, try it over avocado toast. You’ll love it!

This summer salad recipe is made with fresh, seasonal ingredients, such as red peppers and eggplants. If you don’t know what kind of salad you can prepare for your next picnic or barbecue, you should definitely give this a try! It’s perfect both served as a side or as a main meal.

Summer Salad with Peppers Eggplant

Summer Salad – perfect for a barbecue!

I didn’t have any corn, but if you do, some sweet corn would be delicious in this summer salad recipe! Think about some freshly grilled corn on top…delicious! You could also lightly grill the red onion if you prefer it cooked rather than raw.

Hope you’ll try this summer salad recipe! Let me know how it turned out for you!
