Salads are as integral to summer, as hot chocolate is to winter. The season is entirely incomplete without fresh, colourful salads that are not only pleasing to your palette but also your eyes. However, salads are not just dollops of leafy greens and raw vegetables that can potentially make the entire experience slightly, well, unpalatable. And no one said you can't whip up the best of these foods with some delicious meats.

Everyone loves themselves their Ceaser and their Nicoise too -but how about some unique combination of seafood, and protein produce for your next salad? We tell you how!

1. Shrimp Salad 
With colourful veggies and fruits, peel some shrimp and decorate it with edible flowers. The plate will speak of a delicacy supreme. It is perfect for those of you who love your seafood, but aren't really experimental and prefer predictable tastes. More so, it is so easy to prep this for lunch or brunch!


2. Bacon Salad 
No human can ever resist the texture of bacon, let alone the taste that is surprisingly a mix of buttery and crispy. You can either whip this salad up with some potatoes and caramelized onions (YUM) or you can go the less calorific and heavy version with some cheese and apples! Either way this salad works wonders as a breakfast, because bacon -and lunch because, well, salad!


3. Mussels Salad
Now this is for those of you who want adventure on a plate. This oscillates between looking like a fancy dish and a fun dish. Agreeable a tough salad to prepare, this is a great way to break the monotony if you love your greens. Plus it will be a super light dish that can be a total hit at your dinner parties.


4. Ham Salad 
Move over hamburger! Ham salad is filling, healthy, and so totally juicy. The ham and the veggies and the dressing comes together to make a concoction that is undeniably delicious. Plus the light pink sheen of ham is a perfect contrast to the muted green of lettuce.
