My awesome, easy salad is a mix of greens (usually spinach, romaine, kale, shredded cabbage), summer tomatoes and cucumbers, baked falafel patties (I love the kind that come in the green box in the frozen section at Whole Foods!) and my homemade lemon tahini dressing (juice of 1 lemon, 1 T tahini, 1/4 cup water, salt, a touch of agave and minced dill)

For a refreshing gluten-free summer salad, I make quinoa with diced red onion, diced cucumber, chopped walnuts or garbanzo beans, big squeeze of lemon and a big splash of flaxseed oil! The flaxseed oil brings out the tangy nuttiness of the quinoa.

raw kale, dandelion greens, beets, red and yellow bell peppers, blueberries, carrots, roasted sweet potatoes, chopped hard-boiled eggs, and avocado, mixed with a creamy almond butter dressing = the rainbow spectrum+healthy carbs, protein and fat. Everything you can possibly want from a salad.

My go-to awesome summer salad has arugula, avocado, hearts of palm, tomatoes, cucumbers, and garlic shrimp. I use a simple dressing of extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. It's super filling, delicious, and healthy!

My awesome salad has romaine lettuce, baby spinach, kernels of roasted corn, shredded carrots, honey-roasted sunflower seeds, and diced tandoori chicken (boneless skinless) thighs. It is tossed in a sweet and tangy homemade garlic dressing (garlic cloves, white wine vinegar, honey, sugar, salt, olive oil and culantro).

When I want to make a salad for dinner, I like to throw almost everything I can find into it. One of my favorite combinations includes: Whole Foods Organic Spinach, garbanzo beans, halved artichoke hearts, chia seeds, gorgonzola, defrosted pre-cooked shrimp, canned sweet corn and some kind of nut. Normally I prefer walnuts or almonds. I finish the salad with a homemade greek yogurt dressing and take two parts greek yogurt, 1 part honey, 1 tsp mustard and a dash of balsamic vinaigrette and stir it together. It's healthier than most dressings and I know exactly what is in it! This salad could serve as a whole meal!

My mom makes the most awesome salads, but this is the one that everyone loves the most: mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, green peppers, yellow peppers, red peppers, red onion, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Colorful, nutritious, delicious. We have it with almost every family dinner.
