Those are the recipes that can make you crave kale and quinoa, that you keep coming back to, that make you say, you know what? Even for dinner, even after a rough day, salad sounds awesome.

  • Most of these look like they’d take a long time to make (grilled steak and onions–really?). Here’s one we make every week, makes at least 4 servings, more if you have other food with it. Here’s the recipe–can of garbanzos (drained), can of Hunt’s basil/garlic diced tomatoes (drained), 6 oz. feta, half a red onion, 2 tbl of red wine vinegar, can of olives, big head of romaine. Chop up the onion and olives, mix everything except the lettuce, then chop up the lettuce into finger sized or smaller, mix. Takes 15 minutes or less if you have help.

  • One of the best things about this Mediterranean salad recipe is the only thing you have left over is the red wine vinegar (very shelf stable so you will have it available for other salads or a repeat on this one) and half a red onion. I don’t know what you are supposed to do with all the leftovers of the other salads listed here–for instance, half a cup of fresh parsley, half of cup of fresh basil, and 2 tbl of fresh tarragon? What are you supposed to do with the leftovers of these fresh herbs that last about 2 days in your refrigerator?

  • Love this site and the salads look gorgeous just not sure on your words. “Here are some killer salad recipes” at the start

  • These recipes look really yummy, but they should certainly not be advertised as quick – some of them take at least an hour, if not more. Also, is less than 300 calories a realistic dinner serving?
