20 Salads Hearty Enough for Tonight's DinnerAngie McGowan and Erin Lebar
We love to make big salads for dinner at our house. The salad that I make most frequently is a taco salad. It’s one of my comfort foods. But I also make lots of other different varieties, including rice and pasta salads. Including meat, beans, or whole grains is a great way to add more substance to a salad. I also like to sometimes include a nice cheese in place of a meat and add lots of nuts or seeds. Salads like the ones I have in the slide show below are hearty enough to make your whole family happy, but if you’re worried they won’t be quite enough, you can easily supplement with fresh crusty bread and grilled chicken breasts (or tofu) if the salad is vegetarian.
