Skip the salad: 25 other ways to eat fruits & vegetables

25 non-salad vegetable dishes

Avocados provide vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants. Let's keep things simple with California Avocados' recipe for avocado toast three ways. There are countless recipes for fancier versions.

Buffalo Cauliflower

Buffalo chicken is unbeatable. Obviously. This Buffalo cauliflower recipe from Food Network is quick and painless (unless you use super hot sauce) (unless you use super potent hot sauce, of course). Also, blue cheese dressing is demonstrated.

Pizza cauliflower

Cauliflower is in the pizza's crust, so you can't see it. This gluten-free pizza substitutes cauliflower for dough. Before toppings, bake the "crust." As you can see, this one is covered in meat, but you add or substitute some extra veggies if you want a healthier or vegetarian pie.

Pepper-and-apple coleslaw

Think coleslaw is just carrots and cabbage? This All Recipes recipe includes red bell peppers and two types of apples. This odd-sounding dish is perfect for summer cookouts. (Don't leave it in the sun too long—mayo there's in there.)

Avocado Truffles

It might sound a bit far-out, but you can actually mix avocado and dark chocolate, roll it into a ball, and serve it as dessert. Don’t believe us? Check out this simple no-bake recipe from Spoon University and try it for yourself!


Fajita ingredients vary by recipe and chef, but most include red, yellow, and green peppers, onions, and sometimes tomatoes. Try Amuse Your Bouche's slow-cooker fajitas. Add mushrooms, steak, chicken, shrimp, etc.


Why stop at banana bread? has a recipe for fresh-baked bread with strawberries, blueberries, and/or peaches. Optional: bananas. Prune and cranberry bread recipes are included.
