First up in my 12 Skinny Salads for the New Year round-up is my absolute favorite Winter Berry Renewal Salad with Granola Croutons.
I love this salad. It is one of my all-time blog favorites. So delicious. In that same style, another one of my go-to recipes is this Quinoa Salad with Arugula, Grapes, Walnuts and Feta.
Another delicious-looking salad featuring fruit is this Summer Kale and Blueberry Salad from fellow Jersey girl, Coley Cooks.
I also love the combination of this maple roasted butternut squash and pomegranate harvest salad from Through Her Looking Glass.
If power is what you are looking for, this Power Salad from Pinch of Yum will surely put you in the right direction. I also think this Roasted Beet Salad from The Farm Girl Gabs is a winner, as well as this Detox-ish Kale Salad from Coley Cooks.
If a more protein-packed salad is more your style, you will absolutely love this Mexican Sugar Seared Salmon Salad from my very favorite blog, the Cafe Sucre Farine. The picture makes me want to drool.
Unique salads are also something to think about. This Simple (No-Cook) Zucchini Caprese Salad from With Salt and Wit is an interesting salad twist and this divine Grilled Avocado Caprese Salad from my food-blog BFF, Colleen of Souffle Bombay.
Colleen is killing it with this picture. I just want to take a big bite of this right now. I’m obsessed.
