On these warm, sunny days, I want to spend less time in the kitchen and be outdoors as much as possible. A lot of what I serve throughout the day is the culmination of early morning pottering . Baby potatoes boiled and popped in the fridge for a simple side or a salad later for dinner, chicken roasted on the bone until crispy, dressings mixed in jam jars waiting for the moment of glory — all small jobs that lead to delicious meals later on that only require simple assembly.

This week, I have three great snappy summer salads that all have components that are easy to prep in advance, leaving you with plenty of time to enjoy the last of the summer days.
