Summer hearty salads and a glass of wine to wrap up the season...

We love a hearty summer salad that incorporates all of the seasonal vegetables garden growth and simplicity.  The Wine Spectator's editors have come up with a delicious roundup of hearty salads that can serve as your go-to plates celebrating August's end with flavor and flair in every bite!

By the time we’re deep in August, standing in front of a hot stove holds little appeal. What you want in the heat of summer is an all-in-one dinner—only a glass of wine on the side—with minimal cooking time and maximum flavor. These five salads bring together assortments of fresh, seasonal produce and healthy, filling protein, with creative add-ins for flair—ensuring that you leave the table with both your appetite and your palate satisfied.
