If you’re dieting this summer, chances are, you’re very familiar with salads.

You’re probably eating them for lunch and dinner and maybe even snacking on them between meals — and you’re probably bored with them.

If so, keep reading!

I’ve been munching salads for ages now, and I’ve got 17 salad recipes to lose weight and still tempt your taste buds.


1. Spinach and Feta Salad

Spinach and Feta Salad

This is one of my favorite summer salad recipes to lose weight!2

It’s also very simple to make… fill a medium-sized bowl with baby spinach leaves (washed, of course!), then add a handful of dried cherries or cranberries, some carrot shavings, and top with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing.

If you can afford the calories, you may also add some feta cheese crumbles.


2. Slim Caesar Salad

Slim Caesar Salad

This salad recipe to lose weight is garlicky, so it’s not the best for date night, unless you both eat it!

Fill a medium-sized bowl with romaine pieces, then add a few low-cal croutons, a little shredded low-fat parmesan cheese, the top with low-fat or fat-free Caesar dressing (I love Ken’s), toss, and enjoy!

You might also want to top with diced grilled chicken breast or salmon for a complete meal, one that’s loaded with lean protein.

3. Veggie Medley Salad

Veggie Medley Salad

This is another salad recipe to lose weight that tastes great!

Fill a medium bowl with iceberg lettuce, then add sliced cherry tomatoes, diced cucumber, carrot shavings, shredded purple cabbage, and some pea pods.

Top with your favorite low-cal or no-cal dressing and enjoy all the colorful veggie delights!

4. Fruit Salad
