34 Delicious Salads

From Doughnut Salads to Drinkable Lettuce

— March 22, 2012 — Art & Design
Let's face it, salads are not always the most exciting and appealing part of your meals (especially when there's something like a juicy burger sitting right next to a pile of lettuce), but with these salad innovations, you'll never be bored with your salads again.

From salads topped with doughnuts to salad bowls made of bacon, there are plenty of not-so-health-conscious options if packing on the calories is your thing. However, if you want to maintain a healthy and balanced meal while still adding flavor, you can look into flavor shaker salad tossers or even try plating your salad onto a slab of watermelon instead of a traditional plate.

Whatever you may be into, these salad innovations are sure to have your mouth watering.
