Whats On Your Salad #4

Have you had your salad today?
Salads are cool. Salads are crunchy. Salads are fun.

They're the perfect way to be sure of healthy eating. Salads are an option at practically every restaurant, as cheap as one buck-a-roo at the drive thru, and take less than 5 minutes to throw together in your own kitchen. They offer a bang of fiber and can satisfy one serving of fruits and veggies, add nuts, meats, or seafood for a boost of protein then pick the right dressing to pull it all together.

In last week's salad post I promised to share with you some easy home made dressing recipes.
Here's what you may have missed up to this point...

Thai Peanut Dressing - paired with slaw mix, every veggie in the fridge, and nuts
Sweet Asian Dressing - paired with Napa Cabbage, ramon, and almonds
Citrus Dressing - paired with spring lettuce, asparagus, red onion, and mandarins

home made salad dressing, chickpea salad, tahini salad dressing, salad recipe

Tahini Dressing - paired with spinach and chickpea

1/4 c. lemon juice
2 tbs red vinegar
pinch cayenne & salt
1 clove garlic
let sit 5-10 minutes then whisk in...
1/4 c. tahini
1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 shallot, thinly sliced

home made salad dressing, salad recipe, Orange Citrus Salad dressing

Orange Zest Dressing - paired with scallops and oranges on arugula

1/2 tbs sherry vinegar
1 tsp orange zest
1/2 shallot, thinly sliced
pinch of salt
let sit 5 - 10 minutes then whisk in....
1/2 c. olive oil

I recommend trying any one of these 5 dressings. It's too hard to pick a favorite, they are all seriously that good. Each one is healthy...a little olive oil does the body good. Home made dressings are easy to make and more tasty than store bought, since you can alter the ingredients to your own liking. You could even take the simple route of filling a jar with vinegar and infusing it with your favorite herbs like dill or cilantro or peppers and Italian seasonings. get creative!

Here's my favorite salad of the week....can't wait to see what you've been chomping on!!!

Mix chopped Romaine lettuce with grilled chicken breast slices. Add almond slivers and wonton crumbles. Sprinkle sesame seeds and cilantro on top! Brace yourself for a yum, yum salad, the cilantro adds a punch!

Asian Sesame Dressing - Panera Bread Knock Off

1/4 c. vinegar
1/4 c. toasted sesame oil
2 tbs soy sauce
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp sesame seed
whisk and let sit then add 3/4 c. canola oil
straight off the Panera site!

mmm :3 recently I've been eating lots of chickpeas on my salad- so tasty and protein-y!

Lindsay Erin said...

Love tahini! Will definitely have to try that one. I'm going to miss this link up!

Beth said...

I really need to start eating more salads so I can link up with you! :) So fun and so many great salads!

Julie-Becoming A Navy Wife said...

I started eating more salads as of late as a result of a weigh in at the doctors office and pants that are getting way too tight...I can't wait to try some of these!!!

LEIGH said...

Great minds think alike! I just wrote two posts on effortless salads in the past two days! Even included my standard dressing! I'll have to try these :)

Annie said...

I need to make more salads--we've been eating terribly lately. That spinach and chickpea salad looks fab. I've been on a huge hummus kick lately so I should trade smashed chickpeas for regular!

Kimberly said...

I have had this panera salad twice this week!
