Tossed salads are so passe. Why not turn the BBQ on its head this summer by choosing one of these summer salads that look amazing... and taste even better?

Dinnertime can be easy too with this dill-icious pasta salad that’s packed with nutrition. Avocado gives this dressing a creamy, ranch-like consistency that clings perfectly to the fusilli noodles; black beans add protein and colourful veggies bring on the vitamins.

A delicious accompaniment to grilled meats or fish, this vegan-friendly, gluten-free dish would also be a great element in a summery brunch buffet. If you make this dish, be forewarned: you might not have any leftovers – it’s that tasty.
