8 Salads So Good You Won't Believe They're Healthy

1. Blueberry Brussels Sprouts Salad from Two Peas and Their Pod: It might not seem like blueberries and Brussels sprouts would go together, but their different tastes work really well together, especially with avocado and feta cheese.

2. Avocado Cucumber Tuna Salad from Primavera Kitchen: By replacing the typical mayonnaise-based dressing with a vinaigrette that is flavored with lemon, this tuna salad maintains its zesty and fresh flavor.

3. BLT Chopped Salad from Well Plated: Everyone knows that what's inside a BLT is better than the bread. Add both fresh and sun-dried tomatoes to this salad to make it taste even better.

4. Mama's Famous Bean Salad from Live Eat Learn: Even though this salad doesn't have any fresh greens, it's still very healthy. It has corn, peppers, onions, and two kinds of beans: kidney or pinto beans and black beans.

5. Broccoli Salad With Raisins and Sunflower Seeds from A Couple Cooks: Since the broccoli in this dish is raw, you'll need to dress it at least an hour before you eat it so that it has time to soak up the flavor.

6. Chickpea, Barley, and Butternut Squash Salad from Sweet Peas and Saffron: If you don't have or can't find barley, you can use another chewy whole grain in its place. For example, farro or bulgur would work just as well.

7. Chorizo Rice Apple Salad from Healthy Nibbles and Bits: If you want to make this wild rice salad a veggie meal, you can use a plant-based chorizo instead. You could also use a tamer sausage instead of the chorizo.

8. Spicy Ranch Chopped Chicken Salad from Ambitious Kitchen: There is no doubt that this cabbage salad is filling, thanks to the spicy grilled chicken, creamy avocado, crunchy pepitas, and crunchy tortilla chips.
