So I desperately need to start eating healthier!
Sometimes when I go out, restaurants and cafes make the most amazing salads with yummy dressings, but my salads taste like, well boring vegetables.
Does anyone have any really yummy, healthy and quick to make salad recipes?

I love making salads!
Here are some good combinations (I add these to the usual garden salad base and generally use French dressing):
Tuna, egg, peas and sweetcorn
Chicken, bacon, avocado and cheddar
Four bean mix and slivered almonds
Haloumi and strawberry
Feta, pine nut and watermelon
Sweet potato, pumpkin, prosciutto and wild rice

My dressing is usually crushed garlic, seeded or dijon mustard, white wine vinegar and olive oil shaken in a jar and kept in fridge.
I like blanched green beans as a base, then add toasted almond slivers or sticks, dressing, lemon zest on top.
You can add crumbled feta, baked beetroot.
I also like mini iceberg lettuce leaves topped with homous, serena tuna, spring onions, coriander, chopped mint, sprinkle with paprika, lemon juice, lemon zest.

Watermelon salad is the best.
Slice a red onion and marinate in lime juice until you're ready to serve. Then cube watermelon, a bunch of mint, torn, Danish feta, crumbled, and whole pitted Kalamata olives. Chuck the onion in and toss. Best summer salad.
