When’s the last time you made a salad in five minutes? It may sound like a silly demand for brisk efficiency, but I'm of the camp that believes foods that go down easy can be just as easy (and quick!) to prepare.
Sure, good food takes time, but not always.
With summer in (almost) full swing, salads are ready for their moment in the sun. And the best summer salads are clean and minimal. They’re chunky and let their individual players shine, and don't often have more than five components. With produce at its annual peak, why bury it in heavy dressings and among an array of other loud ingredients?

Here are five salad recipes that you can make in five minutes. No stove, not much chopping, loooots of reward.
This clean medley lets the individual components do all the talking. The fruity cubes are punched up with a splash of balsamic and taken to the next level with some crunchy sunflowers seeds. Oh, and don't forget the feta!
This one's as green as they come. Crunchy cucumbers meet up with creamy avocado and it's for sure a good time. Top it all off with mint and a bit of lime juice and you've got yourself a mean, green, summer salad machine.
