Bread-Free Alternatives for Salad

Whether you're trying to cut down on carbs or simply want to try something new, serving a salad without bread is one way to shake things up for lunch or dinner. In addition to the bell peppers used in the recipe above, you can get creative when serving salad. Try incorporating the following changes for a quick fix to your favorite meals today.

*Instead of spreading your favorite pre-made deli salad on bread, opt for serving it on a bed of fresh spinach greens. You'll love the taste, too!

*Consider rolling up your chicken salad in a corn tortilla that has been heated up in the microwave or on the stovetop. This option will make your salad instantly portable, too. 

*Clean a fresh tomato, then scoop out the seeds inside. Pat it dry, then fill it up with your favorite salad for a tasty and tangy option. Although beefsteak tomatoes will work best, you may also split a roma lengthwise to serve a salad.

*If you're trying to avoid gluten, then using a baked sweet potato as your base for a salad just might work for you. Bake the sweet potato completely, then top it with your salad. You'll have a hearty and filling lunch in no time.

I am so thankful for this Mayo-Free Chicken Salad recipe. I'm determined to eat healthier this year, and this recipe is great. Substituting the Greek yogurt for the mayo, and adding just a touch of olive oil really delivers a lot of flavor, without the fat. Recipes like this are helping me to make healthy substitutions.

I really don't enjoy mayo, so this chicken salad recipe is perfect for me!

This recipe looks so good! I love chicken salad, but I don't like mayo. I can't wait to give this recipe a try!

I love the presentation of this of this salad, and the list of healthy, low fat ingredients. This would be perfect for a girls' lunch or as a snack at my book group. I would also try this with canned tuna.
