5 Awesome Salads + The Everything Salad Superfood Recipe

The everything salad. It’s my go-to concoction whenever I need some veggies in my life. Normally, adding extra vegetables to food gets difficult, especially when it’s sweets that I really want! This salad is as delicious as it is pretty and is packed with the super foods you need for that extra boost. Enjoy!

 

The Everything Salad

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups diced spinach
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup tomatoes, cherry or diced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1/2 cup diced avocado
  • 1/4 cup green onions
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • balsamicĀ vinaigrette dressing
Wash and cut up all veggies, place them in a large bowl and toss with desired amount of dressing. You could add almost any vegetable to this salad: bell peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, edamame, cucumber, the possibilities are endless! I use the balsamic vinaigrette dressing from Fresh and Easy, love it! You can always use your favorite or make your own. To make this salad a little lighter, you can use half the amounts of almonds and feta cheese.

  • all these salads sound wonderful! I’m esp partial to the antipasto salad, but I really can’t pick a fav, so I must try them all!!!

  • All of the salads sound yummy. I really want to try the Watermelon and tomato and the BLT Salads the most. I love salads and I could eat them three times a day.

  • Thank you so much for so many genuinely GOOD sounding (as well as looking and reading) and just perfect for me and my Honey/Hubby RIGHT NOW.

    We both have just come off a year of surviving mega health crisis and are committed to not only a full recovery – but maybe even feeling and being better than ever. Exercise and DIET are playing a major role in our journey to health. We are eating several salads everyday – and I have just added all of these wonderful recipes my current recipe file and will be trying them all in the next few weeks. Thank you so much for sharing these wholesome, healthy and delicious dishes – and especially for making them so appealing and tempting.

  • I love salads and this looks good; if not “appetizing” to people it’s easier to throw it in a blender and “eat” it that way and it’ll go down quicker.

  • I have to say I’ve never been too much of a salad person,but the Watermelon and Tomato Salad sounds YUMMY!
