I can’t lie. For a while, salads didn’t get me going quite like a cheeseburger lunch would. I remember brown-bagging salads to work in hopes for a healthier meal, only to be disappointed once my noon hit.

As we ring in 2018, I know most of us are hoping to start on a new, health-conscious track. I don’t blame you. While I’m a strong believer in goal-getting all 365 days of a year, there’s nothing like a clean slate (ie.: a new year) to kick those goals in the butt.

So no, salads do not have to be bland, boring greenery, sitting dull in your plastic tupperware. Take a look at these five delicious salads that put a twist on veggies, grain, and other fun ingredients.

5 Delicious Salads for Your New Year’s Resolution

Delicious salads that'll actually have you wanting more. Here are five of my faves.

{one} I’m a sucker for a good, creamy potato salad. Of course, I know that this isn’t always ideal considering the amount of carbs in each bite. Luckily, Wholesome Yum came up with this fantastic alternative using cauliflower.

{two} I have always loved quinoa and this Thai Veggie Bowl is absolute perfection.

{three} For all of 2017, I had this obsession with brussel sprouts. Most of my family members didn’t agree to my liking but hey, they still ate it anyway. Here’s a caesar salad that uses brussel sprouts as a main ingredient.

{four} Looking to serve something a little more fancy? This Microgreen Baby Pea and Asparagus Salad makes for a mouthwatering starter.

{five} Yeah, my sweet tooth couldn’t resist this number – fruits and veggies?! Sign me up!
