Two Super Simple Salad Recipes Sponsor

  2. I’m always on the hunt for new recipes. Thanks, pinning these for later.

  3. My favorite way to top a salad is with crumbled bacon or sunflower seeds; something that will give me some crunch! I might have to try that recipe on the right. Tasty!

  4. Michal says:

    Thank you for the recepies- It sounds really good and tasty. I think I will try them 🙂

  5. These salads look good! I have some lettuce in the fridge that needs used. I think even a simple addition of salami would make the salad so good. I have some in my freezer that I think I will have to pull out and add. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Mo says:

    I love salads. These both look really yummy and don’t require much prep time. I think I might give the Italian Salad a try.

  7. Emily says:

    Both sound yummy! Its funny, I love salad in restaurants but I never like them at home. I usually make one up every night for my husband but not me. When I do, I love crasins, crumbled feta and walnuts.

  8. We are just not salad eaters in my household.

    I love salad! We have just added a chicken salad to our dinner menu that even the kids love (which totally suprises me.) It’s such a refreshing, light, filling, and easy meal most times. Thanks for these new recipes, I’ll have to give them a try. I always need new dinner menus.

  10. Tanya says:

    I love salad! Thank you for these new recipes. I will be trying these out soon 🙂

  11. Amber says:

    I am always looking for a new way to do a salad! Right now my favorite topping are raisins or craisins. Thanks for the new recipes 🙂

  12. Great recipes- I’ll have to try them both this week! We are salad lovers in our house! 🙂

  13. A Kerr says:

    I’m in a taco salad crazy right now. Thankfully it’s one my kids eat too!

  14. Lyne A says:

    I get bored with salad, which is costing me a lotta expensive lettuce going to wasted. I will definitely try the chef salad.

  15. Teresa says:

    Yum! I love salads! I have a big salad for lunch just about every day. I prefer chef salads, but maybe I’ll have to mix it up and try a variation of your Italian salad sometime.

  16. Yum! Those salads look yummy! I’m a huge fan of salads when the weather gets hot, or on nights when you just don’t feel like cooking. 🙂

  17. Stacey says:

    I must admit I don’t eat a lot of salads but they do look lovely. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up a bit so that I can give them a try.

  18. Jen says:

    These both look amazing. I cannot wait to add them into our summer menu.

  19. DeBalino says:

    These salads look delish! I was just thinking about what salad to make this weekend for the family. Thanks so much for posting!

  20. Leila says:

    That Italian Salad sounds heavenly! I am a big Caesar salad person and that’s about the extent of it. Oh, antipasta when I’m really in the mood. I will have to try the Italian salad… I’m sure I could get hubby to try it too! 🙂

  21. Diana B says:

    Both salads sound delicious. I usually have the most boring salads – lettuce, cheese, dressing. I’ve got to start making interesting salads.

    • Angi says:

      Growing up, that’s how I did salad. Iceberg, cheese, imitation bacon bits, and croutons. I smothered it in ranch dressing because I didn’t like the taste of salad. Now that I’ve experimented with other lettuce types and added interesting toppings, I use way less dressing and get more taste out of the salad itself.

  22. Anna says:

    Wow! I tried the recipe for the Italian salad, it was so delicious! We’ve been eating way too little salads lately. I’m so boring when it comes to salad but I loved your recipe. Thanks for sharing it 🙂

  23. Dory says:

    I love printable recipes…I’m so much more likely to try them!! Thanks 🙂

  24. Both salads sound delicious! I love food so it comes by no surprise that I find them yummy. 🙂

  25. Liz says:

    I haven’t made salads in a long time. I cant wait to try these out. Thank you for posting these. It will be fun to change things up a bit.

  26. Carol Z says:

    These look good. I’m always looking for interesting new salad recipes and I will put the Italian Salad on my list of salads to try. Sometimes I add raisins or chopped olives, depending on what’s in the cupboard or fridge.

  27. These recipes look yummy! Plus I love the layout of your blog and how the recipes have the dotted line around it in case you want to print and cut it out. Very cute!

  28. Anita Edifor says:

    I love salads and try to eat one most days. They make a simple meal so complete or make a good meal on their own. Thanks for this, I will give them a try.

    • Angi says:

      I’m amazed by the amount of people who eat salad daily. I don’t know if I could do it. I’d worry about getting bored with so much salad. I’d bet changing it up is a necessity to avoid that rut.

  29. I’m not creative when it comes to the “topping” part of a salad, we usually have croutons.

    But when it’s time to make a salad, I love to add in creative things, like dried cranberries, walnuts, almonds, different greens, cheeses (feta is my current fave). Also meat! We are carnivores and if I serve a salad without meat, my teen asks me what happened to the meat 🙂

  30. Dawn says:

    Salad and Soup have to rate as my favorite meal but it is easy to get stuck in the rut of creating the same one over and over. For those who don’t LOVE salad as much as I do in my family, it is even harder to enjoy the monotony. 🙂 Thanks for sharing 2 yummy recipes. The Italian Salad looks divine and even the most reluctant herbivore in my home may find this tempting.

    • Angi says:

      When the local restaurant that inspired the Italian salad recipe put the salad in front of me, I wasn’t sure what to think of it. I’ve always gotten such basic salads at restaurants so it was refreshing to see such thought put into a simple salad. That’s why I shared it, to help people get out of their salad rut.

  31. Both of these look tasty! I like the toppings on the chef as my favorites but I would definitely try the Italian

  32. Anastasia Carpenter says:

    Hi Angi, the salads sound really tasty. Since I’m a vegetarian, I usually top my salads with hard boiled eggs and sunflower seed bac’n bits. I make a homemade salad dressing using plain yogurt, apple cider vinegar, salt and stevia. Sometime I add a little cayenne or some herbs like basil and oregano, or nutritional yeast and Tamari sauce.

  33. My hubby and I love salads- We have a huge bowl every single day. We’re quite simple and usually go for lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and avocado with olive oil and lemon dressing. Your recipes look yummie!

  34. Thanks for the giveaway. I don’t know if I ever liked NeuYear–I’ll go check, but the button for them for Facebook wouldn’t pop up. The salads looked great!

  35. Tamara says:

    I love salads, but my hubby gets tired of them. I love the lettuce &/or spinach with avocado, black beans, black olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, shredded cheese, some grilled chicken, topped w/ chip pieces. So basically just throw it all in a bowl & mix it up!
    But I also changed it up. These 2 recipes actually look really good. I am going to pin them
    And what an awesome giveaway you have there

    • Angi says:

      We love mixing up the greens for different flavors. I love avocados so much but I’ve never put them on a salad unless you count guacamole on a taco salad. It’s a great idea!

  36. The Italian Salad looks yummy! It would go great with a fresh baguette. I love to put sunflower seeds and dried craisins in my salad!

  37. Ashley S says:

    Those look like very refreshing salads. I like that they are simple and seem easy and quick to put together 🙂

  38. These sound good. I am always looking for salad recipes 🙂

  39. Danielle says:

    I love salads and will eat almost any! Love your recipes…thanks so much for sharing them!

  40. Michelle Jones says:

    We have a Salad bar night. I offer all kinds of toppings and everyone creates their own. This is one of my kids’ favorites right next to breakfast for dinner night. A great way to get a good heaping of veggies in their bellies. One of my new favorites is adding chopped/sliced apples or avocado.

  41. Glenda Cates says:

    Both salads sound so yummy. I can not wait to share them with David as he loves Salads in the Summer. Thanks for sharing them with us.
