One of my favorite summer salads, my Bacon-Cheddar Potato Salad, is made with mayo. We made it on Memorial Day, and we’ll probably make it again on the 4th of July. I also make a macaroni salad that is my mom’s recipe. I usually make that once or twice each summer.
These are the exceptions, because most of the time, I’m trying to avoid mayo-covered salads. Part of the reason is that I’m just not the biggest fan of mayonnaise, but also because I’m trying to eat healthier and mayo doesn’t fit in well with my lifestyle.
Our family loves salads for side dishes, though, so I’ve been on a mission to find some of the top mayo-free summer salads out there. Check them out in the slideshow below — you can reach each recipe by clicking on the photos. Enjoy!
