These four plant-based salad recipes are the perfect addition to your 4th of July celebration - whether you are staying home or bringing a dish to share with friends.
Do you have any fun plans for the 4th of July? We are going to celebrate with our neighbors, so I will make one of these salads to take along. But, if we were hosting the party, I would likely make all four!
Now, the question is, which salad should I make?

Why bother with salad when watermelon tastes great all by itself? Well, sometimes you want to fancy things up a bit. This recipe does just that!
Black Rice Veggie Salad
