Happy Friday Guys! So today’s post is a round-up of the 10 Simple & Healthy Salad Recipes I love.
To be honest, they’re much more than that, but these are the ones I picked for you.
I do make and consume lots of salads so for me it’s important to make them different and tasty every time. I often add fruit, cheese, seafood, meat and seeds. And some of them get so filling that they can easily pass as a main. 🙂 I’ve got some really skinny ones but most of them are packed with goodies.
Here we go…
So this beauty is made of black quinoa, roasted pumpkin and creamy tahini dressing. Oh, there’s a handful of sunflower seeds for that extra crunch. It’s perfect for the cold days, especially during the pumpkin season. 🙂 It’s super filling and amazingly tasty. Definitely one of my fav!
This one is a typical salad I eat during a hot summer day. It’s very light and refreshing but at the same time it’s very nutritious. It’s packed with vitamins and minerals so it’s really good for you. And of course, it tastes delicious! The combination of cottage cheese and fresh ripe raspberries is divine. 🙂
Loaded Shrimp Salad
Well, let me see, this one is a bit on the naughty side, but I every bite of it is pure happiness. 🙂 It’s more of a taco bowl/salad, inspired by my love of Tex/Mex food. What’s not to love about it – succulent shrimp, ripe avocado, crunchy tortilla chips, pinto beans, Mozzarella cheese and a generous serving of sour cream – all in one comforting bowl. 🙂
I’ve been having lots of kale salads recently(recent years I think) so I really tried to mix things ups and make them tasty and pretty. 🙂 This is definitely the one I like most from the kale variety. The blueberries and blue cheese work so well together and the grilled chicken add some extra deliciousness. It’s all taste crunchy, juicy and fresh. 🙂
This one I actually made from leftovers. I used some lean beef, ripe pears, rocket and raisins. It turned out the combination was really satisfying and quite filling. You can easily use it as a main dish, plus you get your five a day. 🙂
Simple, but very refreshing salad, ready in just a few minutes. The orange got this salad to a whole different level. 🙂
Next one – earthy and nutty flavour and packed with goodness. This grain salad will keep you full for a long, long time and will give you the energy you need for the busy day ahead.
Grilled Halloumi Cheese? Yes, please. Grilled Baby Peppers & Rocket to go with it? Perfect. It’s more of a cheese with salad this one, but as I love Halloumi it’s perfect for me. Well, may be a few pieces less next time. 🙂
For all of you who are on a raw vegan diet, this is delicious, absolutely lovely salad to make in the summer days, either to accompany your mains or as a side. You might’ve noticed, I do like radishes. 🙂
I remember I made this pomegranates during the festive period last year and they got really popular amongst my friends and family. Not only they look pretty but they’re also very yummy, with my favourite feta cheese and quinoa – simple but tasty.
