4th Of July Salads You Can Make All Summer Long

pesto pasta salad with cherry tomatoesPesto Pasta Salad

This pasta salad is a classic, featuring a homemade basil-and-pine nut pesto, a generous amount of Parmesan, and juicy grape tomatoes. It’s worth getting out your nicest olive oil for this recipe since the flavor will shine through.

As much fruit salad as it was green salad, Panera’s beloved salad featured a juicy orange and onion poppyseed dressing and pops of fresh fruit, like strawberries, blueberries, Mandarin oranges, and pineapple. We’re hoping it’ll one day return to the Panera menu so we can order it alongside other faves, but in the meantime, it’s super-easy to make at home!
