Stuck in a salad rut? Ditch your boring salad routine and try one of these 15 mouth-watering, healthy summer salads dietitians love!
It’s time to break up with your boring salad routine and start dating more adventurous, really good looking, crispy greens surrounded by flavorful goodies.
We’ve got almost 8 weeks of summer left and I have been loving crisp, leafy green salads are still in full swing. With the blazing Texas heat, I find salads totally refreshing during these hot summer months. It can be easy to get in a salad rut (you know… that dirty look you give your vegetable drawer after you’ve made the same salad three times in a week), but rest assured these salads are going to spark your creativity. I’ve teamed up with some of my awesome dietitian friends to bring you our favorite, healthy summer salad recipes based around fresh, leafy greens.
From entree-style, protein-packed salads to flavorful, nutritious side salads, there’s something for everyone here. Many of these healthy summer salads are vegetarian or vegan, and most are gluten-free.Drop the boring #salads. 15 #delicious #summer salads comin' at ya from #dietitians! Click To Tweet
