If you think main dish salads can’t appease all your comfort cravings, think again! For anyone who knows me, knows I love a good hearty meal. Whether it be a rich creamy mac & cheese to an all-the-fixins burger with lots of crispy fries. My husband is more of a eat for energy guy, while I am more of a eat for taste gal (…I see my struggles, I am working on them 🙈 ). Finding the right balance of super flavourful goodness, while not having to feel extra guilty after a meal can be hard sometimes…especially through the winter when all I want from a meal is to be warmed up by something thick and creamy.
But now that summer is here…main dish salads are the best of both worlds and all we are craving lately! They are so quick to put together, and a perfect alternative to using your leftovers! So here are 14 irresistible main dish salads you will want to make right now!
