Of course, the term healthy can be somewhat subjective — healthy for the body or healthy for the soul? You can be the judge here, but anytime you're putting leafy greens into your body, you're loading up on nutrients like fiber, folate, carotenoids (which act like antioxidants), vitamin C and more.

And we know, what some might even consider a salad is also up for debate. Do pasta, potato, bean and corn salads count? Yes, but not here, not now. Today we're all about those good greens.

You can check out 44 of our favorite (green) salad recipes in the gallery above. 

Top your salad with some juicy grilled chicken using one of these chicken recipes below:
