Recipe: 6 Salad Ideas for a Healthy Lunch

Best Salad Ideas, Healthy Lunch Recipe

Eating healthy can be a real bore and really hard to stick to if you’re just forcing down boring salads every day. I’ve been eating salad for lunch at work for about a year now and I’ve got rather experimental along the way. Here’s five of the best salad ideas:

1 // Spicy Tuna Salad – Half a bag of ready washed rocket, drain a tin of tuna and empty on top, sprinkle on some chilli flakes (from the herbs and spices section of your supermarket) and drizzle some olive oil as a dressing.

2 // Parmesan & Sriracha Salad – Half a bag of ready washed rocket, grate or flake a chunk of parmesan cheese on top and drizzle on a generous amount of Sriracha chilli sauce (from the world foods section).

3 // Tomato & Balsamic Vinegar Salad – Halve six cherry tomatoes (or my favourite are the plum tomatoes from Aldi, sliced), slice up some cucumber and layer with half a bag of ready washed rocket. Drizzle on olive oil and balsamic vinegar. So much tastier than it sounds!

4 // Baked Salmon Salad – Wrap a salmon fillet in foil with a knob of butter, oven bake for 18 minutes and flake over the top of half a bag of ready washed rocket. You can add olive oil, salt, pepper or even piri piri spice (Nando’s version is good!).

5 // Japanese Salad – A salad doesn’t have to contain lettuce leaves, this one is just a pile of shelled Edamame beans, some chunks of cucumber, slices of smoked salmon and a drizzle of soy sauce with wasabi on the side. So good.

6 // Tandoori Salad – Half a bag of ready washed rocket, drizzle on just a splash of olive oil, slice up some tandoori chicken (from most deli counters or cooked meats sections) and dish out some mango chutney as a dressing. You can even get mango chutney in a squeezy tub for your convenience!

Do you find salad boring? What are your tips to jazz them up?

Quick and easy soup recipe
Step One:
Add your tomatoes to the pan and simmer. Follow this with your BBQ sauce and jalapenos. Taste as you go to monitor spice level.

Super easy, right? Even better is you really don’t need fresh ingredients; every item used was already found in my cupboards. I actually came up with this recipe one rainy Saturday when we didn’t want to venture into the cold to get some food. Really warms you up too, OOF.
