8 alternative ways of serving salads
1. Lettuce and Carrot Salad with Sweet and Sour Dressing
For this salad, tossing healthy Romaine lettuce, carrot, and spring onion in a bowl is just part of the fun. The dressing is the real highlight here because we mixed strong umami ingredients like wasabi, soy sauce, honey, and sesame oil. This is real “health in a bowl” or should we say, “health in a glass”? Because we’ve chosen to serve it in glasses rather than bowls.
2. Apple and Carrot Creamy Salad in a Glass
Welcome to salty, lemony and mildly sweet. This salad in a glass combines carrot with apple. Heavy cream makes it creamy and the lemon juice together with celery give it a refreshing touch. You can serve the salad with style by layering the mixtures in a tall ice cream glass. Garnish it with a slice of lemon and even with sesame seeds if you want.
3. Quinoa and Pea Salad with Green Dressing
Try this mineral-packed, vitamin-loaded side-dish. The low on calorie quinoa and the peas give this salad a beefy, hearty texture, while the almond flakes and even the bell pepper add some crunchiness to it. Complete it with some avocado and savory herbs. You can serve it with style, if you want, by molding it into forms. Your guests will be in awe!
4. Lettuce and Egg Salad in a Parmesan Basket
If you want to serve your salad in cute-looking and delicious baskets made from fried parmesan you are at the right place. In order to fill them, we recommend a refreshing lettuce salad garnished with sun-dried tomatoes and dressed with a basil-flavored olive oily egg and garlic mixture.
5. Pea and Cucumber Quinoa Salad
Try the delicately chewy texture of cooked quinoa and creamy cooked peas mixed with savory onion and slightly crunchy bell pepper. Enrich them with a lemon-flavored basil and dill dressing. Serve with style by making cylinders with the help of a cookie ring. And why don’t you add more kick to your salad by topping with goat cheese?
6. Omelet with Cheesy Lettuce Salad
Have you ever made a taco out of an omelet and a salad? If not, it’s about time you do. Use your omelet as a tortilla wrap for the lettuce and red onion salad. Make the salad really cheesy with parmesan and blue cheese and flavor it with mint. For extra-cheesiness top everything with grated mozzarella.
7. Spinach and Feta Salad in Tomato Halves
This is a regular spinach and feta salad served in a tomato bowl. You can have it as a light snack regarding the hour of the day because it has just a few calories.
8. Greek Salad Skewers
Instead of mixing all the ingredients in a bowl, how about making these Greek salad skewers? They’re easy and fit nicely in a party buffet! Or you can try them anytime you want to eat in front of your TV without making a mess.
