6 Simple Salads to Make This Week

Rachel Morrow RACHEL MORROW

Simple salads are a reliable choice for any meal or any season, that’s one thing we can promise. We can also promise that salads don’t have to be boring, all it takes is a little imagination. That’s it!

These meals are just as perfect for late summers as they are for midwinter dinners. Try these six simple salads this week and let me know what one inspires you most.

1. Ultimate Fall Salad

There’s something special about fall produce. It’s warming and cosy, without being too heavy, and it always makes the perfect salad. Here’s my take that always has a place on the Thanksgiving Table - but it’s not too early to make a debut yet.

2. Green Papaya Salad

Green papaya is reminiscent of our times visiting James and Laurentine in the tropics, so this salad pays homage to them! Plus, the delicious addition supports digestion, so you can’t go wrong here.

3. No-Noodle Thai Salad

There is no doubt in my mind that this Thai-inspired salad is home to the best dressing in the world. In fact, I use it on everything, from rice paper rolls to satay skewers. Where it’s most at home though is on this No-Noodle Thai Salad, where simple herbs and vegetables transport you to another world.

4. Chopped Salad with Ginger Miso Tempeh

A salad rich in probiotic protein? No worries, we can do that too! This ginger miso tempeh is a hero ingredient for an otherwise simple salad, but it pairs just the right amount of freshness to keep you coming back for more.

5. Apple, Walnut & Roasted Beet Salad

Let's talk about beets... A hearty root vegetable that is pretty much available all year round but are especially abundant in the fall. This recipe feels like fall to us, the earthy roasted beets, the sweet crisp apple and nutty walnuts. A great recipe for that fancy dinner party, but just as great for your daily lunches! It's one of those salad's that can last a couple of days and often tastes better the next day.

6. Roasted Cauliflower, Mushroom & Wild Rice Salad

For those seeking a salad with some extra substance, or perhaps something to warm you up on a winter’s day, this salad is it. Perfect for a weekday lunch or a flavor-packed side, you can’t look past the humble cauliflower dish.

Simple salads are a reliable choice for any meal or any season, that’s one thing we can promise. We can also promise that salads don’t have to be boring, all it takes is a little imagination. That’s it!
