What a great salad idea. I really am looking new salad recipes and I found this. You'll never feel guilty eating salad even in huge amounts. Many thanks for this recipe. With this, I'm gonna add more Parmesan cheese.

Some deliciously looking salads here! I love salads and I try to experiment, making them in a different way. This list will definitely help, so thanks for sharing! I think what makes a good salad is a variety of flavours which go together well. My favourite salad recipe I ever created must be this Herby quinoa salad with broad beans and pomegranate seeds
