I have referred to myself on more than one occasion as a ‘crazy salad lady’.  I am a total salad addict, and we eat a big salad for dinner 2-3 times per week.

My dream salad has a mix of different textures (soft leafy greens and crunchy nuts) and flavors (sweet fruit and savory cheese), and it must have a protein (beans, meat, seafood).  I love lots of goodies in my salads, like cheese, avocado, fruit and nuts.  I have mixed feelings about lettuce, but I’ve decided that so long as it is outnumbered by the goodies in the salad, I can live with a bit of lettuce.

So crazy salad lady is verrrry happy to share these 24 easy meal sized salad recipes with you all today!
