Tabbouleh SaladThis Lebanese dish is bright with flavors of Spring, fresh with leafy herbs and filling with each healthful bite.Mediterranean Lentil Salad by Noel Ugarte, MS, RD | Registered DieticianThis salad packs a punch when it comes to heart health. Lentils are high in potassium which counters the bad effects of salt and lowers blood pressure. Bonus, just 1/2 cup of lentils contains almost one-third of the recommended daily fiber intake.Pumpkin and Lentil SaladPumpkin is oftentimes paired with sweet ingredients. Not for this recipe - we're keepin' it savory! This salad is bursting with healthful goodness, packed with antioxidants, tons of fiber and plenty of protein to keep you full longer. Autumn Salad with FigsAs the fall season approaches, healthful salads are a great side item on days where you may be eating heavier festive foods that can cause a carbohydrate and fat dump, leaving you sluggish and ready for a nap. Avoid that feeling by creating a healthy side dish to go along with foods that might be richer in flavors, higher in fat, and packed full of carbs. Figs and pomegranate seeds are the stars of this dish. High in fiber and rich in antioxidants, this salad is perfect addition to any menu. And always fill up on the salad goodness first (a little tip)! Dilly Chickpea and Radish Salad by Mina Goodman, RDN Nutrition EducatorThis tangy, light and very healthful salad is beautiful to look at and present at the next meal gathering. Perfect for outdoor potlucks and picnics. I usually make this the night before or at least the morning of so the flavors have a chance to incorporate into the vegetable.Shrimp Ceviche by Nicole Vaudrin, RDN Nutrition EducatorLight and fresh, there is nothing like a bowl of ceviche as a light meal. Go the traditional route and let the citrus "cook” the shrimp, or use pre-cooked shrimp for those that are a bit more cautious with food safety. Either way, you'll get a complete meal packed with plenty of protein, fiber and healthy fats along with some amazing nutrients like vitamin C that may help improve skin elasticity and stimulate collagen production.
