Quick Healthy Salads with Healthy Dressings

While some people find it easier to combine nourishing ingredients to make a healthy salad, they find it difficult to create their own healthy salad dressing. Most of them rely on and love to indulge into cheese based or mayonnaise based dressings or use oodles of oil to make the dressing. The trick here is to replace them with protein rich curd based dressings or include fruits to make healthy dressings. 

A simple and tasty treat using curds based dressing is Fruit and Vegetable Salad with Low Calorie Thousand Island Dressing and a fruit based dressing is Apple and Lettuce Salad with Melon Dressing. Unique though it may sound, but the melon dressing made with muskmelon puree, cumin seeds, coriander and black pepper is what lends the delicious taste to the fruits in this salad.

Quick Healthy Salads for Work

Carrying and eating healthy at work is a challenge. When it comes to salads you can keep a few pointers in mind to go healthy. 

1.    Make use of crispy veggies like carrot, zucchini, capsicum and so on…. 

2.   If veggies call for par-boiling, cook them just about 50%. Over cooking them might render them to be soft and that’s not what you would love to bite into your salad. 

3.   Chop and toss the veggies and fruits separately and carry the dressing in a separate air-tight container. Combine the two just before eating.

4.   Try and keep a few healthy roasted seeds like flax seeds or sunflower seeds in a dabba at work. Sprinkle them onto your salad while tossing with the dressing. These are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which keeps inflammation and chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart diseases at bay. Check more Recipes Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids
