This summer salad with parmesan crisps I've made with garlic almonds that are SO good.

This summer salad with parmesan crisps made with garlic almonds is literally my new go-to salad for the warmer months. It’s perfect for a potluck, a side dish, or a quick and fresh lunch. You’re going to love it!

Why you’ll love this summer salad with parmesan crisps:

  • Quick: Make this delicious salad in only 25 minutes
  • Versatile: Add in your fav ingredients to this salad, use your go-to greens, or use up what’s in your fridge
  • Healthy: This summer salad is made with healthy ingredients that you’re going to love

Ingredient Notes:

Garlic Almonds: I used Sante Garlic Almonds for this recipe which are my go-to for salads and cooking. These garlic almonds are zesty and made with high-quality California almonds. The seasoning is a blend of real garlic, spicy cayenne, and smoky black better. They’re salty, they’re sweet, and they are spicy. I love them! For this recipe, I used them in the parmesan crisps to really take them to the next level.

Gruyere Cheese: A less common cheese, the Gruyere is a hard Swiss cheese. If you can’t find it, you can sub it for Emmental, Jarlsberg, and Raclette.

How to make this summer salad with parmesan crisps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. To make the savory almond bark combine the finely chopped almonds, shredded parmesan cheese, shredded gruyere cheese, sesame seeds, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix together.
  3. Spoon and spread out the mixture onto the parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-14 minutes but check often as everyone’s oven is different – you are looking for the bark to be just turning golden brown when it’s done.
  4. When the savory almond bark is done, remove from the oven and let it completely cool on the baking sheet while you prepare the rest of the salad.
  5. Make the salad dressing by combining all of the balsamic garlic dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk together OR shake together in a jar – set aside.
  6. Once the savory almond bark is cooled, use your hands to break it into bite-sized pieces. You’ll have more than enough bark for the salad so just use what you see fit and save the rest for a snack!
  7. To assemble the salad, add the arugula, strawberries and beets to a large bowl or platter. Drizzle with the dressing and toss. Then top with goat cheese and savory bark broken into pieces.
