Our 50 Best-Ever Salad Recipes
For mains or sides, savory or sweet
When you think ‘salad’—you might be thinking of a leafy, healthy-ish dish brought together by a simple vinaigrette and some choice add-ins like nuts, cheese, or herbs. But, salads, luckily, have many guises: They can range from a fresh and easy leafy combo to a gathering-ready potato salad, they might be vegetable-forward vehicles for fun ingredients like caramelized pear or burrata, all the way over to the more dessert-y, novelty fruit salad served in a pineapple.
To make sure you’re not pigeon-holing salads, here are 50 slightly different variations to get you thinking outside the box—and put the image of salads as a bland, boring side to rest.
Of course, you don't have to choose between the many possibilities in the list below. Feel free to take inspiration and mix and match the elements you like best—just don’t forget to share your takes on the recipes in the comments below!
