20 Salads Hearty Enough for Tonight’s Dinner

Meat, beans, or whole grains is a great way to add more substance to a salad. I also like to sometimes include a nice cheese in place of a meat and add lots of nuts or seeds. Salads like the ones below are hearty enough to make your whole family happy, but if your worried they won’t be quite enough, you can easily supplement with fresh crusty bread and grilled chicken breasts (or tofu) if the salad is vegetarian.
