And just like that it's summer solstice!
For those who aren't familiar with that mumbo jumbo - the word solstice represents the 'event when the sun is in its most northern and southern points'. Two solstices occur each year - one for summer and one for winter.
The summer solstice is usually around June 21st each year, which happens to be today! <3
So, what does that even mean, and why is this the coolest day of the year?
The summer solstice marks the official start of summer, and it also happens to be the longestttt day of the year. Yes, for many of us in the northern hemisphere, June 21st will have the longest amount of daylight... (and then the days will begin getting shorter with each passing days until we're right back in fall and winter.)
But in the meantime, let's celebrate SUMMER and the longest day of the year by diving in to these amazing, colorful, fresh, and perfect-for-all-things-summer salads. I've got 18 choices for you to choose from - and you're going to want to try them all.
