One of the best things about garden salad recipes is how wonderfully crunchy they are. Using crisp ingredients like onion, lettuce, carrots and red cabbage gives the garden salads a wonderful texture.

Also, because of the typical ingredients in them, garden salads tend to be really colorful. You can usually tailor the ingredients in a garden salad recipe to suit your own taste.


  • 1 chopped iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 shredded red cabbage
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/2 grated carrot
  • 1/4 sliced cucumber

For the Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
  • 1/3 cup (85ml) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Toss the lettuce, red cabbage, tomatoes, red onion, carrot and cucumber together to make the garden salad.
  2. Whisk the mustard, raspberry vinegar, extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper together to make the dressing.
  3. Toss the salad and dressing together or serve the garden salad with the dressing on the side.


  • If you want to make substitutions that is fine.
  • Not everything has to be crunchy either.
  • Soft ingredients like boiled egg, olives or mushrooms can also work well and you can switch the suggested dressing for one you prefer if you want to.
