These make-ahead, meal prep summer salad recipes are super easy and healthy! You guys know I’m a big fan of meal prep and while sometimes I do individual ingredient meal prep (check out my whole series of videos), other times I prefer to do a “make-ahead recipe” that’s one big batch and enjoy it throughout the week. Especially during the summer months when I want to spend less time in the kitchen!
These meal prep ideas for summer salads are light and fresh, and there’s a flavor combination for everyone to enjoy – from Cucumber Shrimp Salad to Mango Curry Chicken Salad and Mediterranean Chickpea Salad. Hope you enjoy!

Sometimes I do individual ingredient meal prep, and sometimes I do big-batch, make-ahead recipes to enjoy throughout the week. I talk about these two different approaches to meal prep in my cookbook. 😉 Let me know if you guys like this type of video, and what theme of make-ahead recipes you'd like to see me make next! xo – Lisa
I will try the Mediterranean Chickpea Salad. I am been loving & obsessed with watching your meal prep videos Lisa.
I have to stop watching your videos at 10pm or I’ll double in size myself 😂😍
I made your Classic Shrimp Salad today. It is so delicious. I can’t wait to try the shrimp/cucumber salad. I really like your YouTube videos and website. So many recipes I have in my rotation now are from you. Some of my favorites are the Berry Baked Oatmeal, Creamy Tuscan Chicken, Greek Sheet Pan Chicken Dinner, Ultimate Ham Salad and Dijon Baked Salmon. I also have your cookbook. Thanks for “feeding” me.
Great salads. I love being able to go to my fridge, grab a quick meal, already prepped. Thanks Lisa.
I love make ahead meal prep meals!! Sadly, I’m allergic to mango, so won’t try that one (although I really want too 😢), but I’ll definitely be trying the other too!! Thanks for your great recipes!! ☺️
Have you tried any other fruit in that chicken salad? I wonder if any other would work? 🤔
I swear, you make the best concoctions ever! They make me just want to eat and eat and eat and, well, you get the picture.😋
Wow, the chicken mango salad looks insanely good! I don’t like the taste of cilantro, do you recommend switching it out for something else, or just omitting it? Thanks for sharing these recipes.
This is perfect. I always have a salad like this in my fridge because this way hubby eats something healthy. Will have to make them all.
These look so yummy! Definitely trying the Mediterranean one this weekend. May even get a like adventurous and add some quinoa haha. Thank you, Lisa!!!
These look delicious. Thank you.
I had a question..why does the shrimp cucumber salad only last 2-3 days and the mango chicken salad lasts 4-5days?
Thank you so much for the inspiration!! Made the Cucumber Shrimp salad.. and boy oh boy!! So easy and so delicious! Looking forward to trying the others 😀
Off to the grocery now! These all sound delicious even the one with curry.(not a curry fan )These would make a great summer carry in dish for work or gatherings. aThank you!!
You read my mind, LOL. After your German potato salad video, I was thinking to myself, I would love to have another meal prep video with salads, and now here you are doing one (a video on this topic). Too funny. 🙂 Thank you for sharing and for letting me share. 🙂
Hi Lisa, I love all your recipes , but I would like you prepare more saladas . Thank you .
These all look super delicious!! What is a good substitute for feta cheese? I’m not a fan of feta, Gorgonzola or blue cheese either. 🥲
I'm so glad you are doing meal prep videos! (Hats off to you and Amy because I know these are not easy) I always go back and watch your ingredient/meal prep videos, but especially now as my kids are just adults (still at home) and I encourage them to make more of their own meals. I really need simplicity to prep a few things for myself for the week … otherwise it's 23 Pizza Rolls in the air fryer … just sayin! Is there any chance you can do a video on your favorite make ahead dressings and/or marinades? Or maybe you (or Amy) can go back through some of the video's you've done and edit one together?
What is a good substitute for feta cheese? I'm not a big fan of feta.
Can you do healthy meal
Prep summer breakfast?
I love summer salads and can't wait to make these. I have a family member allergic to shrimp so can any meat, maybe chicken or tuna, be substituted?
Everything looks delicious!!!!!
I would love to see how you clean and care for your wooen cutting board. I would love using mine but I always end up cutting everything on plastic because I don’t want to ruin the wooden one 🙈🙈
3 really nice salad variations! My favorite would be the chicken salad. The shrimp salad and the chickpea salad are also very nice. Unfortunately, the shrimp variant is out of the question for me. I live far away from the nearest ocean and the amount of shrimp would just cost me too much. For fresh produce, I estimate $30-40. I'd rather take a steak for that.👍👍
What would you suggest as a replacement for the mango. My husbear is allergic to mango.
