Grilled Veggie Fajita Salad

This Grilled Veggie Fajita Salad recipe defies the basic boring bed of greens in the best way possible—it's warm. Well the grilled veggies (portabella, peppers, onion, corn) are warm, and they take your salad game up a bunch of notches. All those veggies offer filing fiber, protein, and carbs (how about that for a trifecta?), and the marinade and creamy avocado make dressing totally unnecessary.

Salmon Salad Power Bowl

The name alone tells you this is not your average #saddesksalad: Salmon Salad Power Bowl. Wild Alaskan salmon offers up a hefty amount of omega-3 fatty acids and heart-healthy fats; you'll even sneak in a serving of fruit with your dinner. Raspberries are tossed in to add some fiber, antioxidants, and you know, pretty color doesn't hurt either. (Check out these other ways to Spice Up Your Lunchtime Salad.)

Skinny Chicken and Avocado Caesar Salad

Caesar salads are typically off limits if you're eating healthy or cutting back on calories—darn you, dressing—but this version is renamed "Skinny" Chicken and Avocado Caesar Salad for good reason. The homemade dressing has less than half the fat of typical Caesar dressings, and you get a double dose of protein from the grilled chicken and hard-boiled eggs.
