Nourishing, Tasty Salads

Salads can be so much more than the iceberg lettuce with thousand island dressing salads that I grew up with.  The websites listed below epitomize salad creativity.  To me, the most interesting salads contain a combination of vegetables, lettuces, meats, grains, or cheeses.  The possibilities are endless.  One caveat is that I always recommend making your own salad dressings.  Commercial salad dressings are problematic because so many of them contain highly processed and/or rancid oils in addition to a variety of forms of MSG.  A great introductory video on the “health” of salad dressings plus a tutorial on how to make your own, visit the Weston A Price Foundation website.  I encourage you to be creative with your salads but if you are intimated on where to start, check out the following websites for an abundance of ideas. 

Kayln’s Kitchen is a vast resource for salad ideas.  She has dozens of recipes for salads with vegetables, fruit, meat, grains, cheese, etc.  I’ve tried many of her recipes and they were all so tasty!

The Nourishing Gourmet has less traditional salads.

For the Foodie, Nourished Kitchen offers more gourmet salad options

Gnowfglins offers a variety of salads, including many gluten-free grain salads.
