The best fresh and delicious healthy salad recipes to serve for lunch, dinner, or your next picnic. Packed with nutritious vegetables, grains, lean protein, and healthy salad dressing.
I don't know about you, but I eat a ton of salad in the summer. This could be an unconscious reaction to constantly being in a bathing suit or maybe its just all the amazing summer produce and the fact that salads are cool and refreshing in the heat. Either way, summer and salad go hand and hand around here.
But after about a week of eating simple salads, I want something more exciting. So instead of eating boring salads all summer, consider making some of these delicious salads and slaws. Want to make it a smaller salad a meal? Just add your favorite protein source - grilled chicken, steak, seafood, chickpeas, beans, avocado, or tofu.
