As we head towards summer, I am looking forward to sharing more salads and grilling recipes. Not that I am sick of soups and stews, but in Seattle, it seems like it is “soup weather” all but a couple of months out of the year. After a long winter of avoiding the wilted and long-traveled lettuces at the grocery store, I now have steady supply of vibrant, fresh greens from either the garden or farmer’s market. I am a true salad lover, and nothing makes me so happy as a fresh greens!

My roommate Jane came up with this beautiful tropical salad for a BBQ we had at our house last weekend. The salty cinnamon-lime dressing pairs perfectly with the mango and coconut. It is more on the sweet side than an everyday salad, but it is definitely a crowd pleaser. It would be a perfect addition to a potluck or for a summer BBQ.
