    Default Salad main meal recipes please!

    Please share your recipes for salads that are filling enough for a main meal.

    I've been eating too many carbs, too much rich food.

    Time to get some nice salads in the weekly rotation

    Roast vegetable salad - roast pumpkin, beetroot, sweet potato, parsnip in similar sized cubes. Cool down, & toss with baby spinach or rocket leaves, some toasted pinenuts & balsamic vinegar. Yum! Also nice with some feta added.

    I do a yummy chicken Cesar salad, you can add croutons if you like.

    1 fancy lettuce shredded, a few diced tomatoes, bacon cooked and sliced, parmesan cheese, either some bbq chicken or I sometimes use those crumbed chicken tenderloins and Cesar salad dressing.

    Thai style beef salad.

    - Salad leaves, Cherry tomatoes, cucumber, onion (optional), Steak, red curry paste.
    - Dressing = Fresh lime juice, fish sauce, palm sugar (or soft brown sugar) and soy sauce. I start with the lime+Fish+sugar and adjust based on how sour the lime is, then add just a tiny bit of soy for extra saltiness (not too much as it can dominate).
    - Spread curry paste onto steak and fry to rare. Remove from pan, slice thinly then return to pan along with the juice/paste that's gone all over the chopping board and stir fry to your liking. Lay onto the bed of salad then sprinkly dressing over. I usually serve with rice which collects all the dressing down the bottom - yum!

    Chicken Ceasar
    Much like others listed but I use breast chicken cut into cubes and dry fried with a little chicken stock powder. I also make my own croutons by cubing stale bread, spraying with oil and dry frying sprinkled with my favourite herbs. I try to use the one pan, crutons first, remove, then bacon, remove, then chicken.

    These two are not salads as such but yummy salad based meals.

    Serve pan fried or steamed white fish on a bed of rocket (or rocket/spinach mix), topped with thinly sliced red capsicum and dress with a mix of lemon juice, olive oil, sweet chilli sauce and S&P. Yummy with oven fries sprinkled with paprika.

    Serve a grilled chicken breast on a bed of spinach topped with a fresh salsa of tomato, red onion and fresh basil dressed in balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with shaved parmesan and bacon.

    Looking for more ideas too!
