Our 50+ Best Salad Recipes
When I was a kid, I thought salad only meant one thing: a bowl of lettuce topped with too-large chunks of carrots, cucumbers, peppers, and tomatoes all tossed with bottled salad dressing. That’s the salad I grew up with and I never questioned if others existed.
Once I started cooking for myself, I realized there was a whole world of salads to explore. Some have varied greens like arugula and baby spinach, others skip the greens completely and replace them with veggies like carrots and beets, and some have so many good things in them that they’re the main event. Truly, there are countless ways to make a salad.
Here’s proof of what I was missing all those years. These 50+ recipes show off just how versatile (and delicious) salads can be.
