It was a week of salads at The Kitchn, and we have plenty of options for your hot summer weekend. Roasted garlic pasta salad, dressed with yogurt and ricotta? Or how about a crisp cabbage slaw with carrots and peanuts? We have a spicy Indonesian fruit salad, addictive miso tahini dressing, cooking lessons on how to roast beets and how to make a better, more delicious simple green salad.

There's also a gardener's salad with creamy Italian dressing (move over, Ranch!) and, for when you've had your salad, a frozen strawberry daiquiri. It doesn't get better than that on a hot Saturday afternoon!
