17 Delicious Salad Recipes You Can Make Without Lettuce (And That You’ll Actually Want to Eat)

By  | 


I used to be one of those people who refused to see salad as an actual meal. While I understood that leafy greens were good for you, I couldn't get over the fact that they tasted bland and that they could never ever fill me up (regardless of how much blue cheese dressing I added to it). But then I ventured out to different restaurants and salad bars and I realized that salad doesn't have to be limited to tasteless lettuce with a few toppings on it. In fact, some salad recipes don't require any lettuce at all!

With so many kinds of protein, greens, grains, and fruit, the possibilities are endless when it comes to salad types. So if you're trying to eat healthier but can't stand the taste of leafy greens, consider swapping a few of your lunches with these lettuce-free recipes! (Fair warning, you just might turn into a salad addict when you try some of them.)
