These are the salads I come back to again and again. A few are my own, the rest are recipes that I wish I had come up with. I hope you like them, too!
*** On an unrelated note, for some reason, my hover over Pinterest button is not working. I am not super great with html, so it is taking me a while to fix it. For the time being, if there is something you want to pin (Like the Raspberry Ice Cream Bars from Tuesday), check out my Pinterest boards. I pin everything I put on the blog on boards there. If you are looking for something specific, drop me a line at measureandwhisk[at]gmail[dot]com. Thanks!
Thai Noodle Salad (Vegetarian) - This is a nice main dish salad, because it has noodles in it. The dressing is to die for, and it has a ton of vegetables in it. I bet you could add a nice grilled meat to it, if you don't want a vegetarian option.
Quinoa, Bacon and Feta Salad - Every time I make this, I wonder why I don't make this weekly. It is a fresh, incredibly delicious salad.
Carrot and Chickpea Salad (Vegetarian) - I think I ate eight bowls of this for dinner one night when I was pregnant. It is delicious. Also, I always use roasted peanuts instead of walnuts, and almost always leave out the cilantro.
BBQ Chicken Salad - YUM! Great for making when guests are coming!
Arugula and Toasted Almond Salad (Vegetarian) - Light and fresh. A great side dish.
Bacon and Pear Salad with Pink Dressing - Adam and I rave about this one. The dressing is to die for! Just half the recipe, or you will be eating it for weeks.
Apple, Cheese and Crouton Salad (Vegetarian) - I made this one many times in France last year. It is worth remembering!
Carrot, White Bean and Dill Salad (Vegetarian, Vegan) - This one is a weird combo, but trust me, it is fabulous!
Beet, Kale and Carrot Salad with Cashew Dressing (Vegetarian, Vegan) - Another salad where I can eat the dressing plain. YUM!
Now it's your turn? Do you have any salad recipes that have changed your world?
