Recipes for 40 of our favourite salads

Some people plan their weekly menus without salads. Salads may be boring compared to other dishes. Maybe they're stuck beyond greens and croutons. People who need more sustenance call it "rabbit food." This collection proves salads can be dinner's stars.

This salad is special because it's a show-stopping entrée. It makes a pricey cut of meat cost-effective.

Steak Cobb

This salad is delicious. Watermelon, cheese, chile, lime, tomatillos, and mint give it sweet, salty, spicy, tart, and refreshing flavours. Try it out.

Watermelon and tomato salad

Even though it tastes like we're eating chicken wings, this salad is both vegetarian and technically a salad, so it's okay to call it healthy!

Buffalo Waldorf

The fish-saucy dressing is the key to this salad's success. If you don't want to eat it in this salad, you can use it as a base for stir-fries, marinades, or savoury caramels for vegetables, fish, chicken, or pork. It's a versatile dressing.

Salad of Vietnamese Steak

This potato salad is lighter. Cauliflower replaces potatoes to create a delicious dish. No potatoes needed.

Cauliflower'Potato' Salad

Combine all your favorite veggies into one salad tossed with fresh, vibrant herbs (hello, basil, mint and cilantro!), buttery avocados and a zesty vinaigrette.

Summer Salad 

This is perfect for warm nights when you want a seasonal, veggie-forward, cold noodle salad. The pork slices are named after the swish-swash of the meat as it cooks in boiled water for seconds. Optional, but highly recommended, is the tender pork, which complements the spring-to-summer salad mix.
