Sick of having the same old boring salad for lunch every day? We're here to help shake up your routine.
Even if you don't eat your greens as often as you should, it's always good to have a few solid recipes stashed in your back pocket — and that goes for the dressing, too (everyone's favorite part, of course). Here are seven satisfying salads every home cook should have in their repertoire.
As its name implies, this one's a hunk of iceberg lettuce, usually served with bacon bits and blue cheese dressing.
3. Kale Caeser
This healthier take on a traditional Caesar salad combines chopped kale tossed with a velvety Caesar dressing and layers of crunchy croutons. Whether or not you choose to add anchovies is totally up to you.

5. Waldorf salad
There are many variations on this classic, but it generally consists of apples, celery, grapes, walnuts, and a creamy yogurt-based dressing.
A blend of large cubes of crusty bread, ripe tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, and basil, this summertime classic might just be the simplest salad you'll ever make. It's also the perfect solution for unwanted leftover bread.
7. Salad Niçoise
Other than being fun to say — NEE-swahzee — this hearty salad is composed of a bed of greens topped with Niçoise olives, sliced skinned potatoes, tomatoes, green beans, hard-boiled eggs, and anchovies, then dressed with a combination of olive oil, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper.
