Salad Pic

No, salads are not boring. Remember when a salad was the iconic small side dish of iceberg lettuce, topped with a few shredded carrots and a dull, soggy tomato wedge and smothered in dressing? Blah! Now THAT is boring. Yet, a rainbow in a dish is nature’s best medicine, so keeping it exciting is everything for enjoyable and sustainable health.

Fortunately, salad has evolved into an absolutely appetizing assortment of possibilities. From fresh vegetable and/or fruit salads to creamy bean and grain salads, there is no end to this new definition of what a “salad” can be. You can always add your favorite dressing or sauce to make any dish divinely delectable, try creating your own bowl, and/or can experiment with these 40 super-creative, rainbow-rich, stunning salad recipes:
