Unique Healthy Salad Recipes

2 Unique and healthy salad recipes

With 2014 being the start of a new year, my husband and I have many goals pertaining to health. Some of our goals include eating healthier foods while other goals include exercising and living a more active lifestyle. I’ve realized that eating healthier doesn’t necessarily mean sacrificing delicious food. Eating healthy is all about portion control (eating smaller meals more frequently throughout the day), eating lots of fruits and veggies, and making sure not to skimp on the dairy and protein. Part of eating healthier, my husband and I will be eating a lot more fruits and veggies as well as including salads into our diets. I’ve decided to share two of my favorite salad recipes. Enjoy!

Total Time 10 minutes


  • Romaine hearts lettuce (or to be healthier, sometimes I will do a spring salad mix)
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Diced red onion
  • Corn
  • Black beans
  • Grilled chicken breast (I typically just use Tyson's precooked chicken strips)
  • Crumbled tortilla chips
  • Chipotle Southwest Salad Dressing


  1. Set lettuce in the bowl
  2. To prevent all of the ingredients from falling directly to the bottom, put all toppings directly on top of salad
  3. Finish salad by sprinkling crushed tortilla chips on top
  4. Serve with dressing drizzled on top or to the side

Cranberry Walnut Salad

This delicious salad was made by a friend and served a little lunch date. Ever since tasting this delicious salad, I make it at least once a week, it’s SO good!
