Healthy Salad Ideas

Posted Jun 10 2010 3:55am

I’ll say it again… free yoga mat !

Here are two healthy salads I made recently. This first one is mostly cold/raw – the only cooked ingredient is an egg.

Ingredients – healthy salad #1

  • base: chopped romaine lettuce
  • fatty topping: avocado
  • veggie topping: tomato, cucumber
  • fun topping: takuan (yellow pickled daikon – Japanese)
  • protein topping: scrambled egg (with oil)
  • dressing: chipotle ranch (I think)

I cooked the egg in peanut oil, which is probably my newest cooking obsession. It’s fabulous.

This next salad is another hot-cold salad and it did not disappoint. (This was actually one of the best salads I’ve ever made, believe it or not!)

Ingredients – healthy salad #2

  • base: romaine lettuce
  • cooked veggie toppings: cabbage, brussels sprouts, green beans
  • protein toppings (with cooked veggies): imitation crab meat
  • dressing: peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, hot sauce, splash of water

Again, I used peanut oil for the veggies. About 1 tablespoon of it. If you use enough oil your veggies get nice and crispy. I also added a splash of soy sauce to the veggies at the end when they were just about done. I added the imitation crab meat (sealegs! why are they called that?) while I was cooking the veggies too. I think the dressing was what made it so tasty though!

What’s your favorite cooking oil?
