When the weather warms up I like cooking less, so we tend to eat a lot more salads. I’m always on the lookout for new recipes to try and different ingredients to use to change things up a bit so we don’t get bored with the same thing over and over again. One of the things I really love about salads is that they are so versatile. They can be made sweet, or savory – low calorie, or not 😉 .
What are some of your favorite salads? Some of the ingredients I use most often are:
- Grilled Chicken
- Dried Cranberries
- Feta Cheese
- Cheddar Cheese
- Hard-boiled Eggs
- Crumbled Bacon
- Dried Tomatoes
I prefer romaine lettuce, butter leaf, and spinach for my salads, but we also use a lot of baby greens because that’s what my husband likes. When I was younger I never really cared for salads that much until I realized what is was that bugged me: stems and centers. Now I make my salads and tear the stems off of the spinach and rip the leaf part off of the romaine and I love it! Guess it was just a texture thing!
I was browsing on the Foodie website for some inspiration and found 12 scrumptious looking salad recipes that I wanted to share with you!
