6 Amazing Salad Recipes You Should Try

The easiest way to eat a quick clean raw meal is to pile your faves into a salad. Salad's don't have to be boring either, check out some of these amazing salad recipes and of course enjoy! Vegan Buda Bowl, Mediterranean Madness, Quick Herbs, Roasted Mushroom and Spinach, The Ultimate Fruit Salad, and Veggie Taco Salad.

Vegan Buda Bowl- This salad has a mixture of sweet, spicy, nutty and super fresh all in one.

Cook half a sweet potato {or do left overs like I have}

Cook 1/2 cup of quinoa

Once finished throw in:

a hand full of purslane or matche {lamb} lettuce

dried cranberries to taste

slice a whole avocado

a squeeze of citrus and a dab or two of Sriracha

Mediterranean Madness - I love a good ole Mediterranean salad from time to time. It's the tangy salty flavors combined that I love and its easy to make.

I like to start with the butter lettuce or a nice romaine for this salad.

Chop one tomato

Red onion, olives, feta cheese, and croutons to taste.

Add some fresh pepper on top and the greek goddess dressing and your good to go!

Quick Herbs- Fresh arugula has such a distinct taste to me, its almost as if its infused with other herbs and seasonings already. Natures goodness is all the seasoning our bodies need really. This one is super easy and quick.

Toss some arugula in a bowl , add some sweet cherry tomatoes, some fresh parmesan cheese and fresh squeezed lemon. Top with a nice Spanish olive oil or vinegarette dressing and you have a tasty quick lunch or side item that would pair well with pasta or on top of a homemade pizza!

Garlic Mushroom and Spinach- Anyone that knows me knows that I have a thang for mushrooms. For this salad I like to lightly sautee` mushrooms in balsamic vinegar and garlic powder. They taste amazing by themselves. But add them on top of a bed of fresh spinach, with cherry tomatoes and fresh avocado and you have a healthy salad you won't want to stop eating.

The Ultimate Fruit Salad- This salad actually came from one of my favorite spots, Corner Market, but I also make fruit salads at home. This salad is amazing because it has baby spinach or mixed greens, freshly sliced strawberries, oranges, blueberries, cranberries, green onions and creamy goat cheese with raisin pecan sweet crisps* and strawberry vinaigrette. Visit their store and do a soup salad combo or make your own at home, this is one of my absolute faves.

Veggie Taco Salad- This is one of my children's favorite salads. Of course with us being from Texas Mexican food is a favorite.

For this salad I add mixed Greens over tortilla chips and I top it with fresh avocado, shredded carrots, black beans salsa, and ranch dressing. Sometime I will cook fajita chickpeas and make my own Spanish rice to go in it as well. This was a lunch salad so I went with the lighter items.
