Here you’ll find some of our favorite salad recipes that have been featured in our Savory Cuisine Corner on MSGdish. Whether you’re looking for hearty main dish salad recipes such as Chicken Sesame Salad, or lighter, nutritious salads such as Vermont Spinach Salad, these salads will delight you — and any salad-lover! And if you’re looking to eat more greens in your diet, we’ve got you covered there as well… go green!

If you’re worried about calories, remember that an otherwise healthy salad can quickly move into the unhealthy category if it’s loaded with high-fat salad dressing. One tablespoon of vegetable oil has about 120 calories and 14 grams of fat, but it has little saturated fat and no cholesterol. You can always choose a low-fat or fat-free dressing. Or, try the “dip and stab” method (with the dressing on the side you simply dip your fork in the dressing before stabbing a bite of salad each time).


The MSGdish Team's goal is to provide timely and important information about glutamate, monosodium glutamate (MSG) and the many culinary creations inspired by “umami" while connecting these topics to facts about food, taste, and health. The MSGdish Team is comprised of TGA staff professionals who are recognized as experts in science-based nutrition communications. Read more on the About page.
