If you’re in charge of appetizers, combine two classics – salads and deviled eggs.

Kale may be the worst enemy for some, but we can’t deny its amazing health benefits.

Yes, they’re here to save the day and supercharge you with a variety of antioxidants that will fend off your worst enemy: free radicals.

Appetizer, side dish, or main course, quinoa salad is so versatile! It just proves how quinoa deserves to be a superfood.
Complete the restaurant-worthy meal by serving it alongside steak or your choice of meat
7. Chickpea Tuna Salad
How can you make plain, same ‘ol tuna salad more enticing?
Add chickpeas for added creaminess and protein!
Chickpea tuna salad isn’t only a filling for sandwiches or wraps either. I prefer overloading my salad with more crunchy greens and eating it on its own as a main dish.
8. Grilled Chicken Salad
Skip boiled chicken over bland greens and store-bought dressing. We’re making a springtime salad that won’t leave your tastebuds moaning from boredom!
By using half your salad dressing as a chicken marinade, you’ll have tender grilled meat loaded with flavor.
9. Cold Soba Noodle Salad
If you’re obsessed with noodles like me, I have great news.
You can make soba noodles into a healthy salad to still get your fix!
Cold soba noodle salads are one of my favorite healthy noodle recipes because of the Asian flavors it exudes.
10. Asian Sesame Chicken Salad
Oh yes, there’s such a thing as Chinese foods that are healthier than takeout!
What’s even better is how you can continue enjoying delicious Asian flavors you crave in a salad.
Feel free to add whatever veggies you want in your dish because it’s the sesame ginger salad dressing that takes the spotlight.
11. Strawberry Arugula Salad
It isn’t only the aesthetics that have me nuts about strawberry arugula salad, but the spectrum of flavors that will convert any skeptical tastebud!
The secret to this salad might be candied pecans, giving people even more reasons to dig into arugula!
12. Spring Salad
Spring salad is an excellent addition to the dining table when you’re entertaining guests.
While it looks simple, it’s what makes the dish look so classy and too pretty to eat.
The rich lemon dressing alone will leave everyone impressed!
13. Vegan Caesar Salad
Instead of chicken in your Caesar salad, you can go for chickpeas to make it vegan-friendly.
They aren’t only similar by the word ‘chick,’ but they are also both rich sources of protein!
While avocados aren’t traditionally added to Caesar salads, I appreciate the creaminess it adds.
14. Salmon Salad
Running out of salads to try serving for dinner?
Or have no idea what to do with the salmon waiting to be eaten? Create a delicious salmon salad so you have a mix of protein, carbs, and fat!
It’s perfect if you’re looking for a filling post-workout meal, too.
15. Fitness Lentil Bean Salad
If you’re a vegetarian or abstaining from meat for Holy Week, getting enough protein may be an issue.
Lentil bean salad is a lifesaver, as you get up to 40 grams of protein in one delicious, filling bowl!
16. Heirloom Tomato Salad
Are tomatoes a fruit or vegetable? It doesn’t matter to me, I can only say they taste pretty darn good.
Make juicy tomatoes the highlight of your salad over the usual greens with this recipe!
17. Tomato, Cucumber, and Basil Salad
Basil would grow in summer but it’s also a spring plant with a minty, peppery flavor perfect for dishes or drinks.
Because of that, it’s worth adding it to salads!
Tomato, cucumber, and basil salad is a simple yet tasty side dish that tastes as bright as a sunny spring day!
18. Beetroot Salad With Greek Yogurt

That’s right, we’re talking BLT salad complete with an addicting Greek yogurt dressing!

Egg salads are always a hit among kids and adults, especially when made into a delicious sandwich.
