When you think of a salad, what comes to mind?
Most likely, lettuce or greens are somewhere in your visual. And yes – like mama says, it’s important to eat your greens. But sometimes, you have to mix it up!
Put a fresh spin on your spring and summer salads with our no-lettuce salad recipes below. They’re perfectly portable, and fabulous additions to your next picnic, barbecue or poolside party. Not only are they delicious, but they are loaded with nutrient-dense ingredients like peanuts, peanut butter, whole grain farro, and fruits and veggies.
For a refreshing and nourishing side dish, go for the Fresh Farro & Peanut Salad. If you need a little sweetness, embrace strawberry season and try our Strawberry Honey-Peanut Salad. And get a spicy kick with a Curried Carrot & Peanut Salad. Or really get out of the box and try our Dijon Peanut Potato Salad -- it has the perfect combo of crunch and creaminess.
