21-Day Fix Approved Salads
This Southwestern Rice and Bean Salad is Tex-Mex inspired. Comforting and refreshing, it is guaranteed to make a regular appearance on your weekly meal plans! You can add some diced chicken or turkey breast for protein and it will make a full and satisfying meal! Get the recipe here.
This Morrocan Carrot Salad with Spiced Chickpeas makes a perfect side dish that is sure to be the star of your meal! The lemon-garlic tahini dressing pairs perfectly with the crunchy carrots and chickpeas. I would definitely serve a grilled chicken breast on a bed of this salad, with the dressing drizzled all over the bowl! Get the recipe HERE!
This Chicken, Apple, and Sweet Potato Salad is one of my favorite salads! I swap Goat’s cheese for the Feta, because it is my all time favorite and I love the tangy flavour with the sweetness of the apples and the potatoes. I am certain it’s also delicious with feta as well. You can also use butternut squash instead of sweet potato and save your yellow container for a treat! You won’t believe this is a 21-Day fix approved salad. Get the recipe here!
Mason Jar salads are awesome and so easy to transform into 21-Day fix approved salads! Not only are they beautiful, they are also practical! The dressing stays at the bottom of the jar, away from all of the ingredients that would get soggy if mixed together. When you are ready to eat, simply shake it and dump it on a plate and the result is nothing short of a masterpiece on a plate! I especially love the texture of the nuts mixed in with the grapes. It’s refreshing and sophisticated. You can make a 2 or 3 of these at the same time and your lunches are done for the next couple days. This Mustard Chicken and Spinach Salad is perfect for lunch or dinner. Get the recipe here!
Cauliflower is one of the most versatile veggies that can easily be hidden in a pizza crust or rice! In this salad the cauliflower is still the star of the dish as it takes the place of chicken or tofu. The barbecue flavour makes it truly summer in a bowl! Get the recipe here!
Another Tex-Mex inspired salad that only has a fraction of the calories you would get in the take-out version of this Taco salad. You can customize this to your liking by choosing the vegetables and toppings you enjoy most. I top this 21-Day fix approved salad with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Get the recipe here!
I hope you enjoy these 21-Day Fix approved salads as much as I do!
