3 Delicious Healthy Salad Recipes to Switch Up Your Boring Routine

January is unofficially salad month with people on a health kick to start off their year living better. Salads are go-to meals for those looking to eat lighter, but many times salads are boring and unsatisfying. Sometimes salads can seem like they are a good and healthy choice, but after the mounds of croutons and coated in rich dressing, it loses its purpose.

Here are three salad recipes that are more than the typical bowl of bland lettuce. These are healthy, delicious and even perfect for dinner parties in your home.

Avocado Brown Rice Salad

Taking some brown rice, lightly-toasted pine nuts, seedless cucumbers, thinly sliced red onions and crumbled gorgonzola cheese and lightly tossing it with avocado oil and lemon juice, this was the perfect backdrop to thick slices of avocado.

This Avocado Brown Rice Salad is perfect with grilled chicken or fish and delicious cold or at room temperature.

Ramen Chopped Salad

This salad recipe for Ramen Chopped Salad is not your typical Asian-style salad. I took ramen noodles and tossed it with chopped Napa cabbage, dressed in homemade sweet miso vinaigrette, topped with an array of lightly sautéed Asian vegetables and crunchy fried tofu.

Kasha Elote Salad

When the weather gets warmer certain parts of Chicago perk up with street vendors selling elotes, a delicious grilled corn treat slathered with cream, cheese, chili and lime. It is incredibly addicting and delicious! This recipe for Kasha Elotes Salad takes the favorite elotes and turns it into a full meal by adding kasha, an ancient grain made of buckwheat kernels. With the addition of a few more ingredients like grilled poblano pepper and red onion, this salad is not your typical side salad, for sure!
