While we love a good green salad, sometimes the same old routine can get tiresome. Luckily there are countless other veggies that are perfect salad contenders. These 10 recipes show just how easy it is to make a healthy, fresh salad without a piece of lettuce in sight.
The classic combination of crisp cucumbers, tangy sour cream, and fresh dill is something we'll never tire of.
For the best caprese salad, go for the best tomatoes. Heirlooms are great if you can find them, but bright red beefsteeks are also a perfect choice.
A sweet and spicy honey-jalapeño vinaigrette and crunchy pistachios jazz up a simple bowl of zucchini noodles and turn them into something you'll be excited to twirl.
Pineapple and cucumber might seem like an odd combination, but the juicy fruit is a perfect match for the crisp vegetable. Light juice adds tang to the situation, and it's rounded out with lots of fresh cilantro.
If you'd like to keep things extra simple, you can swap in a bag of broccoli slaw in this recipe instead of shredding the broccoli yourself.
Toasting the chickpeas in a skillet crisps up their outsides and gives the whole salad a nice bit of texture.
While beets are usually paired with goat cheese, once you give feta a try, you'll realize the salty, briny cheese just might be a better match.
Whether you use fresh or frozen corn, charring the kernels in a cast iron skillet on the stovetop gives them a smoky flavor that really adds depth to the salad.
There will be a fair amount of liquid at the bottom of this salad, due to all the juicy tomatoes, so it's best to serve it using a slotted spoon.
If you have a spiralizer, this is the perfect way to show off its versatility. Spiralize everything from radishes to beets and toss the colorful array with a savory orange-sesame dressing.
