10 + Salad Recipes that are Actually Filling!

My husband has told me that salad recipes are not for dinner- UNLESS they are my salads. The salads in this sections are easy to make, full of flavor, and (most importantly) FILLING. Perfect for an easy side dish or a dinner that will be approved by the entire family!

A few of our favorites? Definitely recommend the Italian Chopped Salad Recipe (my 12 year old’s favorite!), Dorito Taco Salad, or copycat Zupas Strawberry Harvest Salad.
