Summer Seafood Salad with California Ripe Olives is a cool and crisp, crowd-pleasing salad that serves well as an entrée or a lovely side dish for summer barbecues.
I adore summer days when the windows are open and there is a warm breeze drifting through the house. When music is playing in the background as my family gathers on the patio for conversation. Then the sun begins to set, and the dinner hour is finally upon us. Beautiful summer evenings like this one, call for a cool, crisp and delicious Seafood Salad.
I realize that summer is barbecue season, but there are some evenings during the summer months that I crave a tasty summer seafood salad.
A salad with loads of fresh ingredients and then topped with a luscious seafood dressing and California Ripe Olives.
California Ripe Olives are always included in my salad ingredients – especially my seafood salads. These olives are a staple in my pantry and they make an ordinary salad taste extraordinary. The consistent curing process, which is proprietary to California Ripe Olives, results in a consistent taste in every olive. Which makes adding them to my recipes always a delicious option.
Sumer Seafood Salad is a regular on my summer dinner menu. I like it best with Dungeness crab and Oregon shrimp. However, on occasion I use grilled salmon or even smoked salmon, grilled scallops or poached Gulf shrimp.
I also vary some of the fresh produce ingredients. Most often, I prepare this salad with a mixture of tender baby lettuce greens and crunchy romaine. For me, this is the ultimate salad combination. Then I add cucumbers, green onion and radishes because they pair so deliciously with seafood.
This is a perfect summer salad that tastes best with a few fresh ingredients, well dressed, and then garnished with my favorite California Ripe Olives.
Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love,
