These 20 healthy potluck salads make a great addition to the buffet spread at a cookout or party. These recipes will help to balance the treats you'll eat.

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, and that means backyard barbecue season is here. There are so many things I love about summer, and summertime food is right up there on the list. As fresh produce becomes more available and varied with each passing week, delicious summer side dishes take center stage. I put together a roundup of 20 healthy potluck salads that you can feel good about eating at your next cookout.

For the pasta recipes, I recommend using whole grain pasta. If your crowd scoffs at whole wheat pasta, you can mix white pasta and wheat pasta while you’re transitioning your family to the whole grain version. With these delicious toppings, I don’t think they’ll even notice.

  1. Yum!!! These are such great ideas! I always get bummed at a potluck when there isn’t anything healthy. These look great!

  2. Hey Annemarie! This looks like a great roundup! My go-to salad is just throwing a bunch of fruit together with a little fruit juice. Easy and delicious. I’ll have to save this page for later 🙂

    1. Thanks, Christine! I love fruit salad with juice too. It’s such a treat to have that added sweetness.
