Sure, salads are a great go-to healthy lunch option - but admittedly, every time I eat one, I sort of feel like I'm eating a tree. Try as I might, but the texture and taste of lettuce is just not my thing - but that doesn't mean I have to sacrifice salads altogether. It turns out that there are some pretty amazing lettuce-free salad recipes out there that are just as healthy and delicious.
