With the end of summer around the corner and pumpkin spice lattes already in full force, it’s time to celebrate one last roundup with fresh, delicious salad recipes. Are you picturing boring, wilted greens with minimal toppings and dollops of ranch? You know I wouldn’t do that to you.
We have over 50 (yes, 5-0) of the best salad recipes here on Ambitious Kitchen that will seriously make you forget you’re eating a salad. Each recipe is filled with unique flavors, bright colors, and wonderful textures, not to mention plenty of fiber and protein to keep you satisfied. When I say no boring salads here, I truly mean it.
I structured this roundup so that you can skip your $15 Sweet Green order and pick your base + ingredients right here! You’ll find quinoa salads, pasta salads, ones with a spinach base, broccoli base, and even ones without leafy greens at all. These creative salad recipes are perfect for your meal prep lunches and dinners, but unique and fun enough to bring as a side for your next party or potluck.
Get ready for some lunch envy from roommates, coworkers, or husbands. I denoted each recipe as vegan (V) and vegetarian (Veg.), too, so that you can easily find what you’re looking for. While you’re at it, be sure to check out our fav healthy salad dressings, too. Enjoy!
