32 Sensational Salad Recipes
With spring on its way, our thoughts turn to greens, and by greens we mean salad. The great thing about salad that we tend to forget is how versatile it is, and how easily all the ingredients come together. You can incorporate just about anything that you have on hand. Lettuce, spinach and kale or shredded broccoli or brussels all make a great base. Any kind of cheese, from blue to feta to goat cheese to parmesan will add some richness. No cheese on hand? Chop up an avocado, instead. That natural fat adds great mouth-feel. Tomato, cucumber, olives or capers? Now we’re talking. Turn your sights on fruit now. Grapes, strawberries, apple dice or orange segments — any will do quite well, thank you. If you’re in need of a dressing, just mix up some olive oil with any old vinegar or lemon juice that you have on hand. The golden ratio is 3 tablespoons of oil to 1 tablespoon of acidity. If you are not in the mood to do your own mix-and-match, here are 20 chopped salads that will delight your tastebuds.
While our tastebuds are humming at the thought of all these salads, let’s not forget the truly great thing — salad is delicious and nutritious. This time of year, our bodies are craving fresh greens and we just naturally want to ditch the heavy winter comfort foods for something light and low-cal. Go with it! Salad greens are packed with nutrients. Here are 12 more salad recipes that make mouth-watering meals.
