    Thanks for these original summer salad ideas. And the photos illustrating them are great, very mouth-watering. My favorite is the Hawaiian salad because it’s so original and a first for me.

    The tomato salad really look good. What a great picture! It must taste equally good. Will try it some time. A favorite summer salad of mine which requires absolutely no grilling or cooking is this vegetarian black bean bean salad:
