Balsamic Chicken Salad

Ingredients:

1 (8-ounce) package of chicken breast tenders, cut into 1-inch pieces

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, divided

1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half (or quartered if they're large)

2 celery stalks with leaves attached (both ends trimmed off), chopped into bite-sized pieces, and placed in a bowl.

1/4 cup fresh basil leaves (optional), torn or cut into small pieces

Chicken Caesar Salad

  • In a large bowl, combine the chicken breast and romaine lettuce.
  • Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, eggs, and garlic cloves; toss to combine well.
  • Add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and croutons; toss again gently until combined evenly across all ingredients (do not overmix). Serve immediately or cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 4 hours before serving at room temperature

. For the croutons, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a small bowl, combine the olive oil and garlic cloves. Pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Place in oven for 5 minutes until garlic is golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside to cool completely before removing cloves from the oil mixture

Pesto Chicken Salad

Taco Kale Salad

What salads help you lose weight?

Taco Kale Salad

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups kale, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning (optional)
  • 1 cup black beans, cooked and rinsed
  • 2 ounces grated cheese (optional)
  • 1/4 cup salsa (optional)

Directions: Place the chopped kale on a large plate or in a bowl. Sprinkle with the taco seasoning if you wish to add spice to your salad. Add beans, cheese, and salsa if desired before serving.

Sweet Potato, Beef, and Spinach Salad

  • Use sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes.
  • Use beef instead of chicken or turkey, if you’re feeling extra virtuous that day (and your waistline could use it).
  • Add spinach to your salad, which has been shown to help people lose weight by providing more nutrients and fiber than regular leafy greens alone can provide, according to the Mayo Clinic website! Make sure you don't overdo it—you don't want your meal to taste like “lettuce soup."
  • Try using a dressing with less fat than usual—the fewer calories per ounce in the dressing means fewer overall calories consumed during the eating time!

Easy Mediterranean Salad

This salad is a great way to get your Mediterranean diet on. It contains lots of vegetables and protein, so it's both filling and low in calories.

To make this salad as healthy as possible, use a low-carb dressing instead of regular mayonnaise or vinaigrette (since they contain oil). You can also add chicken or shrimp if you want to increase the protein content even more!

If you want to add an extra punch of flavor, try adding feta cheese or olives before serving this meal with some fresh fruit on top—it will make all the difference!

Asian Edamame Protein Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup edamame beans
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped and washed
  • 1 cup cucumber, sliced into thin strips

Instructions: * Add the edamame beans to a saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 3-4 minutes until slightly tender but not mushy. Drain in a colander, and rinse under cold running water until cool enough to handle (this prevents them from getting soggy). Cut off their ends using kitchen shears if desired. Set aside on paper towels until ready to use later in this recipe.* Place all ingredients except for your favorite dressing together in a large bowl or container (I recommend one that's easy to transfer between pots because you will be adding these items while they're still warm). Toss well so that everything is evenly distributed throughout each serving.* Cover tightly with plastic wrap or foil (or place directly into freezer) until ready for eating later on tonight!

When you're ready to eat, simply heat up the ingredients in a large skillet over medium-high heat until warmed through. Toss with your favorite dressing (I recommend something creamy like ranch or Greek yogurt) and serve immediately!

Chickpea and Sweet Potato Chopped Salad with Feta and Tahini Dressing

  • Chickpeas are high in fiber and protein. They're also a good source of iron and magnesium.
  • Sweet potatoes are a good source of vitamin A, potassium, vitamin C, manganese, and other nutrients that fight inflammation.
  • Tahini dressing adds extra flavor to this salad by adding lemon juice—which provides vitamin K—and tahini (sesame butter), which contains calcium along with protein-rich almonds or cashews if you don't want to use peanut butter as an alternative source of fat!

Avocado Steak Caprese Salad

Avocado Steak Caprese Salad

Preparation time: 10 minutes

  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano leaves (or 1 tsp dried), chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (about 2 ounces)

There are many salads that can pull double duty to help you slim down.

There are many salads that can pull double duty to help you slim down. Salads are a healthy choice, and they're also an easy way to make sure you get enough vegetables in your diet. Not only do they pack in fiber and protein, but some research shows that eating more leafy greens can help lower cholesterol levels as well as reduce your risk of heart disease.
