Summer salads

We've been eating some really great salads lately.  How about some links with a few of my recipe tweaks...

Sweet potato, apple, and curry salad (the recipe doesn't have apples in it, I used maple syrup instead of honey):

Watermelon salad with pepper jelly vinaigrette.  I don't know what mache is.  I just used the watermelon, pecans, and gorgonzola and of course, the pepper jelly vinaigrette.  Yum!

Cornbread salad with black beans (the option at the bottom of the recipe).  I added olives, both green and black and jazzed up the dressing with chili powder and cumin:

Grilled peach salad with blue cheese and honey balsamic dressing.  I don't have a panini grill.  I did them on the charcoal grill outside and used mixed greens.  Really delicious!

Mango and fennel salad.  To this, I added sweet red pepper, cucumbers.  Delicious and colorful.

Is there anything better for summer eating than a smorgasbord of salads?!  I don't think so!
