20 Healthy Dinner Salad Recipes

20 Healthy Dinner Salads – a whole meal in a bowl or plate.

Quick, Healthy, Satisfying and easy dinner recipes - make salad the whole meal

Who wants to work away in a hot kitchen in the summer?  I sure don’t.  That is why I love refreshing, light and fresh salads that are a meal for dinner.  These salads will leave you satisfied and happy.  I love having a big salad for dinner in the summer.  I love ice-cold lettuce paired with crunchy vegetables, and of course, a flavorful dressing.  Some of these have meat or seafood and others are meatless.  All will leave your tummy happy and healthy with minimal work.  Salad, it’s what’s for dinner.
