Main Meal Salads
Salad Dressings and Dipping sauces
Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing
If you are looking to switch up your regular salad dressing here’s a great one with a super bright flavour, not to mention the cool green color! The almonds are the key to thickening it up without the need to add mayo! This dressing will last in an airtight container in the fridge for about 2 weeks.
Flavors of Morocco Budha Bowl
If you are not yet familiar with a Budha Bowl, it is a big bowl of healthy food that usually includes: a grain, a protein, lots of veg and a yummy sauce! This one is jam packed with flavors of Morocco, between the spiced crispy chickpeas, pickles turnips and couscous - all drizzled with an oh so creamy tahini sauce! Yum!
Red Quinoa and Edamame Budha Bowl
In this Budha Bowl, I use red quinoa – well... just because it’s so pretty! As well as protein packed edamame and of course avocado! Dig in...It’s good for you!
Salad Topped with Bean Sprouts and Baby Corn
This is a fun twist on a classic green salad. I find the bean sprouts and baby corn give it a slightly Asian twist, but also add lots of fun texture and flavor!
Kale & Sweet Potato Slaw with Cranberries and Pecans
This is a really hearty salad for any meal! And yes ... the sweet potato is added raw and it is delicious!! Bring this salad to your next potluck and you will be the hero! This will make a very large salad, but it will keep in the fridge for a few days if you have leftovers.
Warm Maple Miso Dressing
This one is a really nice tangy dressing! Great for topping salads or cooked greens!
Miso Beet and Quinoa Budha Bowl
I’m really into Budha Bowls lately! A giant bowl of food that usually starts with some grains, lots of veggies and some form of protein. In this one I use yellow beets as well as the greens attached to them and lots of chickpeas in a miso dressing. For the grains here I chose to mix my quinoa with bulgur as the combo is just super fluffy and nutty!
Corny Kale Chickpeas
This is a delicious and hearty lunch time salad. You can eat it hot or cold, but I have to say I really prefer eating it hot! If you are taking it for a lunch at the office, just place all the ingredients in a Tupperware and microwave when ready to eat.
An upscale lentil salad full of herbs and sundried tomatoes! Perfect for a picnic lunch or a bbq!
Lemony Celery and Portobello Salad
This is a great change from a routine green salad. It is really easy to put together and it is really fun to eat, really fresh, lemony and crunchy!
Quinoa with Beans and Kale
A great mix of so many superfoods! This simple dish will keep you full of energy all day!
Herbed Quinoa with Chickpeas and Walnuts
A really nice refreshing quinoa salad! Full of fresh herbs this is a great salad for a potluck or to serve as a grain with any meal!
Smoky Mediterranean Eggplant Salad
This dish is so creamy and smoky – really delicious! Serve it as a side salad or as an appetizer with some pita chips for dipping.
Boston Lettuce Topped with Cremini Mushrroms
A great simple side salad to serve with a pizza or quiche!
Peanutty Cucumber “Noodle” Salad
This is a great refreshing “noodle” salad – where the noodles are made entirely of ... cucumbers!! Really yummy without the guilt!
Greens Topped with Beets and Chickpeas
This is a great lunchtime salad that will really fill you up! It’s a great use for leftover roasted beets if you have them around, but you can also roast them for the salad.
Zaatar Tomato - Cucumber Salad
This is a really simple salad to put together, but extraordinary because of this incredible spice mix Zaatar. It really makes the salad special! It’s a great addition to any brunch table or a side salad with a nice dinner.
Quinoa Black Bean Taco Bowl
I love these huge “bowls” for dinner! This one is Mexican inspired with hearty quinoa and black beans on top of crisp lettuce, creamy avocado and all topped with a chipotle lime sour cream!
Creamy Carrot Salad
This is a lightened up version classic creamy carrot salad! The raisins add little bits of sweetness which balances with the tang from the lemon juice!
Balsamic Beet and Carrot Salad
This is a really nice light and refreshing simple salad! The addition of raw beets in this salad adds a touch of sweetness and lots of crunch!
