    Default Healthy vegetable salads

    Im looking for healthy vegetable salads.
    It seems all the recipes I find has bacon and
    cheese. Both great additions to a salad, but not
    healthy. Is there such a thing as a healthy salad ?
    Im open to healthy suggestions. :-)

    Ahh - salads are my favorite! I always love trying new ones. This is one of my absolute favorites. You can eliminate the cheese if you want: https://www.williams-sonoma.com/reci...ue-cheese.html

    I am a big fan of the Little Salad Bar kits from Aldis. Healthy, delicious, and an excellent value. Just stir and eat. Leaves me more time for quilting. Other grocery stores have similar precut kits. Here is my personal favorite

    I know how you feel. I usually make 'kitchen sink' salads, everything goes in. Nuts, seeds, red cabbage, chick peas topped with gorganzola. But I ran across an article from Food & Wine that featured Italian salads. Some have meat but most are really healthy and different. I think the hardest thing about salads is getting away from starting with lettuce, that's why I always have shredded red cabbage in the fridge,

    If you like saurkraut, you can make a salad with it. Drain well and add chopped celery and onion, a bit of red pepper flakes, sliced radishes, and Italian dressing, the vinegar and oil type. If you don't like the kraut, just use finely shredded cabbage.
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    I really don’t use recipes for salads, but instead start with mixed greens or red cabbage or kale, etc. I have a salad bar list on the fridge that lists all kinds of add ons and I just use what I have on hand at the time. I like variety and never make a salad exactly the same again, at least not for a long while! I try to include as much color as possible. I never add cheese. I use just a hint of a h8memade dressing or oil and vinegar or balsamic. I eat a lot of salads for dinner as our main and largest meal is at lunchtime.

    I dont usually participate in cooking questions because our way of cooking is different and some products I dont know but salads are a dish of the world although in each country it is different. Our salads are seasoned with olive oil and vinegar or with Mahonesa an egg and oil sauce that is typical of a Mediterranean island. Well here I put two recipes that we use a lot, although there are many more, the first is the Spring salad and has lettuce (not cabbage) tomato, scallion and olives, it is very cheerful and can be accompanied by meat or fish, and the two is Bilbaina consisting of cooked potato, boiled egg, olives, peas, tomatoes, and asparagus, canned tuna with oil and a little venegar. Enjoy salads with whatever you like it is a fantastic way to eat

    That reminded me of this salad. I used to order it a lot when I lived in California.

    'This type of salad with potatoes, beans, cooked eggs, tomatoes, olives and tuna is a classic French Nioise salad.'
