- Pasta salad
Many people make their pasta salad with a lot of pasta and little else. That can be healthier! Add broccoli, crunchy peppers and fresh spinach to the pasta salad. Bulbs of mozzarella and pine nuts provide fats and taste.
Some fresh basil is perfect to come all the way to the Italian spheres in a healthy way! Finally, make a dressing of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a drop of honey, and you’re done.
- Rice salad
With a rice salad you quickly end up in the Asian corner (although you can also go for Mexican, of course). Fill your salad with onion, carrot, red cabbage, broccoli and paprika. Pieces of chicken marinated or not, do fine for the proteins.
Add cashew nuts for healthy fats and extra proteins. You make a nice Asian dressing with soy sauce, lime juice, fish sauce and ginger.
- Sushi salad
Another meal salad based on rice: the sushi salad! Just like your favorite sushi, but a lot easier to put together. Fill the salad with strips of cucumber, carrot and avocado. Furthermore, some salmon yield both proteins and healthy fats. As a seasoning, you can of course use snippet-sliced nori and sesame seeds. Finally mix soy sauce with rice vinegar for a simple dressing, and voila!
- Sweet potato salad
Sweet potato works great if you want to make a Mexican meal salad. Also a good way to get your portion of legumes in! Roast the sweet potato into cubes in the oven with a dash of olive oil, salt, cumin and paprika.
Mix with a chopped red onion, cubes of avocado, black beans, tomatoes and peppers. You only have to season it with lime juice, fresh coriander and more paprika and cumin.
- Chickpea salad
Do you want to make a meal salad in which legumes really play the main role? Then chickpeas are the ideal option. Add a lot of arugula or spinach, along with cherry tomatoes, cucumber and avocado.
Also grilled vegetables are a perfect addition, and some diced feta is taking a delicious flavor. The dressing can be very simple: a dash of olive oil and some fresh coriander, you do not need more.
