Satisfying Salads — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, January 16th, 2012

If your New Year’s resolution is to eat smarter in 2012, it’s no secret that fresh fruits, vegetables, substantial proteins and healthful whole grains will become your best food friends this year. For a light meal that is easy to make and incorporates those hearty grains and good-for-you veggies, try serving a few simple yet satisfying salads in place of a traditional, heavy meal. Ditch those basic leafy green salads and opt for ones that boast interesting ingredients and textures.

Food Network Magazine’s Warm Beet-Orange Salad (pictured above) is packed with such in-season eats as tender roasted beets and bright citrus. Toasted walnuts add a welcome crunch to this colorful plate.

Try a Bulgur Salad (pictured above) from Food Network Magazine to experience this fiber-rich whole wheat that will fill you up for hours. Top with briny black olives and chopped cucumber to enjoy this go-to dish that is ready in just 25 minutes.

Meatless Monday, an international movement, encourages people everywhere to cut meat one day a week for personal and planetary health. Browse more Meatless Monday recipes.

    It's nice to see the Food Network promoting Meatless Monday. Hopefully it will increase the number of vegetarian recipes on the website. We took the Meatless Monday pledge in 2009 and have been posting a new vegetarian recipe on Mondays ever since.

    Love that Food Network has meatless Monday recipes. Looking forward to going beyond the salad thing. I've been vegan for more than 15 years and people think all I eat are salads. Although I do like salad :) That one with the beets looks good, I am always looking for a better way to eat some of those "hard to eat" veggies.
