Summer Squash Salad With Avocado Dressing

Summer is my most favorite time of the year. Although this year is definitely a different one for sure, I’m still appreciating the beautiful sunny weather that comes with it. We’ve pretty much moved into my Moms house this summer, and are taking advantage of the suburb life for sure. Pool, backyard, and outdoor grilling are in constant rotation over here. Because we live in an apartment, I can’t get enough of the BBQ. I’ve practically made every dinner on the grill. Grilling, in turn, calls for amazing salad recipes to pair with all the grilling. This is where my mom’s summer squash, Brussels, and arugula salad comes in handy.

You will love this salad recipe, but especially the avocado dressing. It tastes so fresh and very easy to make. It really will make a great side dish for all your summer grilling and you may want to use this Avocado dressing on your chicken next time!
