Perfect Side Salads for your Memorial Day Cookout
It’s Memorial Day weekend! The unofficial start of summer and prime cookout time. Now, everyone loves a juicy burger or tasty hot dog, but what about the all-important side dishes? We’ve got you covered with the must-serve side salads that will make everyone rave.
In case you were wondering, the word salad comes from the Latin word “sal” which means salt, as in the 14th century French and English would usually dress raw vegetables with oil, vinegar and salt. We have kept this tradition of dressing up vegetables with salty toppings/sauces and calling it “Salad.”
