10 Great Salad Recipes


10 Great Salad Recipes // Bubby and Bean


Yes, this is the third 10 Great in a row where I'm featuring something that can be consumed. But unlike the indulgent holiday cocktail and cookie recipes of the last two, this time around we're focusing on something healthy (or, at least somewhat healthy, depending on how crazy you want to get): the salad. Despite the fact that I've been a vegetarian for more of my life than not, I was never a big salad fan until a couple of years ago. To me, salads were either too boring (oh, look, some chopped iceberg, yay) or too excessive (if you're going to drown your baby spinach in creamy dressing and meat cubes, why not just go for some delicious cheese fries, ya know?). But I've discovered that with a nice balanced mix of greens, veggies, healthy fats, maybe a little protein, and just a dash of dressing or spice, the salad can be an awfully satisfying meal - one that I even crave these days. The recipes you see here are either ones I've recently tried or have on my list to make this month. If you have any favorites of your own, please share in the comments! I'm always on the look out for creative salad ideas.

P.S. If you haven't yet, please take just a minute to answer this short, anonymous reader survey. I'm very grateful for your feedback, and will use it to make Bubby & Bean the best it can be! Thanks again.

  1. I don't eat lots of salads during winter, but I'll pin some of these so I'm all set when spring and summer arrive!

  2. Salaaaaaaad! I love any iteration of them where a lot of ingredients are involved. We tend to have a lot of dried fruits and nuts around the house, so those are easy to toss in with veggies and make it a meal. All of these are so yum.

  4. I have had a salad everyday with dinner so far in 2015 and maybe it's psychological but I swear I feel better! I'm looking forward to trying some of these, I'm getting to the point where I could use some variety. Haha

  7. That winter quinoa salad looks to die for. I'm one of those weirdos who loves greens, but yes, they need to be dressed up with other fun ingredients. I can't wait to try some of these!

  9. I'm not really a salad girl, either - mainly because I prefer my food warm. But I have to admit that some of these salads look so gorgeous, I can't believe that they wouldn't be delicious, too.
