10 Exciting and Healthy Salad Ideas
I won't lie to you. I wouldn't exactly count myself among the fans of salad. I don't hate it, I just don't love it -it's just kind of tasteless to me. Kind of like how I feel about (unpopular opinion here, don't shot me) Maroon 5. Given the option, it isn't on my menu.
So, when I think lunch, salad isn't really first on my mind. It's more like burger, poutine, tacos for me. However, I may just change my tune after checking out these creative, hearty and healthy salad recipes that don't skimp on taste!
1. Tomato and Cucumber Summer Salad
2. Sugar Snap Peas with Sliced Pears, Gouda, and Pistachios
3. Endive, Romaine and Citrus Salad
4. Watercress + Fig Salad
5. Charred Corn Salad
1. Warm Balsamic Kale Salad
2. Sweet Fig and Mesculin "Splitsville" Salad with Nutty Pesto and Goat Chese Crostini
3. Lettuce Wraps: Moroccan Quinoa Salad
4. Strawberry and Avocado Spinach Salad in Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette
5. Kale Chef’s Salad with Chopped Egg, Walnut, and Avocado

Great ideas! I love anything with feta so 3 of my go to salads are 1) pasta, pesto, tomato and feta salad 2) pearl couscous dried cranberries and apricot with feta with balsamic dressing and 3) curried pearl couscous tomato, mango and feta. Another good one is grilled peaches with halloum cheese and maple syrup/white wine vinegar dressing
Thanks for the excellent ideas. I'm gonna try the fig salad this week.
great for back to school! more healthy lunches... except some of them took too much time to prepare.
Out of all of the salads, I can unfortunately say I wouldn't try any of them :(
The Warm Balsamic Kale Salad looks so good. My Dh doesn't love salad, but he's happy with a taco one.
I have a tomato/cucumber salad at least 4 times a week haha, but my favourite new one to try from this list would have to be the moroccan quinoa lettuce wraps. The kale chefs salad also looks amazing!
The strawberry avocado one sounds delish! Also i totally agree with you about Maroon 5 haha.
Oooo that kale salad sounds delicious. I'm going to try and make this!
Made me so hungry......
