15 Whole 30 Approved Salads

I’ve eaten more salads in my lifetime than I can count.  And even though I consume a salad nearly every day, I’m not sick of them yet.  The key to a delicious, filling and satisfying salad is in the toppings.  I consider any dish with an un-cooked leafy green as the base a salad.  So today, I’m compiling a list of some of my favorite Whole 30 approved salads that are easy to throw together and anything but boring.

Take note, these are salad ideas, not detailed recipes 😉
