Plenty of us have plans to eat healthier in the new year. And what says “healthy” more than a salad? Of course, we’re not talking about a sad bed of greens with some light dressing. Many of our favorite salad recipes featured on Well+Being and the Best Bites blog include ingredients that are sure to leave you feeling full, satisfied, and extremely healthy.

Double Berry Rice Salad
For a punch of whole grains, nuts, and fruits, try dietitian Paulette Thompson’s berry rice salad. One serving is just 320 calories and provides more than a quarter of your daily fiber needs, plus healthy fats. 

Beet Salad With Grapefruit and Feta
Cafe Saint-Ex’s roasted beet salad is a bit more complicated than your typical salad recipe, but it’s still worth the wait. It mixes roasted beets, candied grapefruit, fennel, and feta for a sweet and tangy salad. 

Tabbouleh With Chickpeas, Veggies, and Lemon-Garlic Dressing
This high-fiber salad packs in four different vegetables, raisins, and roasted pine nuts to create a sweet and savory take on a salad. 

White Bean, Tuna, and Avocado Bowl
You really won’t miss the meat in this salad bowl. The tuna, beans, and avocado will leave you feeling full straight through that afternoon slump. 

Chickpea, Avocado, and Feta Salad
This super-simple recipe takes just a few minutes of your time and combines some of our favorite ingredients: chickpeas and avocado over a bed of greens—no heavy dressing needed. Simply garnish with pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.

    Thanks for the inspiration! I am notorious for being unable to make anything delicious without a recipe. The chickpea, avocado, and feta salad should be a hit in my vegetarian household.
