45 Filling and Healthy Salad Recipes

Happy New Year!!

2015, baby! Fifteen years after the turn of the century! Who here thinks that’s cuh-razy?! Who here’s too hungover, drunk, or asleep to care? I hear ya, smalls, have a salad. Well…maybe have a salad made out of bacon before advancing to the raw vegetables.

45 Filling and Healthy Salad Recipes @roastedroot

At the beginning of 2014, I posted a 50 Detox Smoothie and Juice Recipes roundup, which you all slurped down so hard, I barely knew what hit me.

This year, I figured I would give you some ideas for healthy entrée salads that can be devoured any time of year. These salads are packed with nutrients and are actually filling, making them great meal ideas for the start of the New Year.

Let’s hop to it!
