A meal version of the popular dip, this salad is packed with tasty layers such as crisp lettuce, olives, cheese and avocado. Canned black beans add a source of protein without having to cook – for a twist, try mixing them with corn kernels for extra sweetness. You can use corn from the cob or frozen and thawed corn.
Sweet, in-season strawberries are the base of these pretty pops along with fiber-rich chia seeds. An optional boost of protein powder helps keep you satiated until lunch.
Golden chickpeas and cauliflower give this salad a rich, earthy taste that matches well with the nutty quinoa.
Boston lettuce is tender and almost buttery, which is why it’s also called butterhead lettuce. Here, it offers a delicate contrast to crunchy snap peas and pecans, soft peaches and tender red peppers. The sriracha-laced balsamic vinaigrette adds a lovely burst of heat that stands as a counterpoint to the sweet peaches.
A twist on a typical Caprese salad, our version makes use of the eggplant slices you grilled on Sunday for easier prep. For the dressing, you can use a simple splash of olive oil and balsamic as the recipe indicates, or use the Macadamia Basil Pesto for a more herbal flavor.
The textural appeal of this yummy salad — the crunch of the cabbage, the tender bite of the squash and the rich meatiness of the shrimp — makes it an amazing one-dish meal. Choose a crisp, sweet-tart apple for this salad, such as an organic Honeycrisp, Braeburn or Jonagold. This salad pairs beautifully with the warm, sweet flavor of our Sweet Maple Sesame Dressing.
