10 Serving Bowls Just Waiting For Summer Salads

Warmer temperatures call for drastic measures, like pulling out the grill and heading to the Farmers’ Market for fresh produce. Because summertime means salad straight from the garden, tenderly grilled hamburgers and friends to share it all with. Whatever you do though, please don’t serve those chopped leafy greens in the salad spinner or worse… a stainless steel mixing bowl. Take a look at these 10 serving bowls that will help your salad compliment those juicy burgers.
