Vegspiration: Salads

Tired of boring salads? I've posted before on big salads and ideas, but here's a little eye-candy and some recipe links to get you inspired:

Salads pictured above, clockwise from top left: Artichoke & chickpea salad, Fresh summer corn & avocado salad, Broccoli, mushroom & tofu salad, Kabocha squash salad, Asian spinach salad with miso dressing, Broccoli, chickpea, and tomato salad, and (middle): an easy big salad.

All of these are favorites, as are the Tofu Crunch Salad (a great alternative to tuna or chicken salad, and very easy to make), and kale salads with delicious dressings.

Hope that inspired you! What? You want more?!

Above: Fresh Green Bean Salad- easy, a little crunchy, and delicious.

Above: Raw Kale Salad with lentils and tomatoes. Trader Joe's has some great bagged lentil mixes that you simply soak and then boil, and they make for a great addition to a kale salad.

Also, here's a link: what better place to check out salad ideas than a blog dedicated to non-boring salads and titled Salad Pride?! Boring salads, be banished! ;-)



  1. I love eating giant salads for a meal...the chickpea and artichoke one sounds really good - I've made a similar one multiple times and it's always a hit! Just wanted to let you know that I included your blog in my nominations for the blogger Liebster award -

  2. Ahh no way! Cool. Thanks! And DEFINITELY make that artichoke & chickpea one. It's awesome. I've made it twice in the past 2 weeks.
