Include chicken, turkey, ham or eggs in the healthy salad recipes to make the meal wholesome and to add proteins to your diet. A combination of fresh vegetables and chicken or ham makes great salads. To make fava beans and ham salad, shell and skin a pound of fava beans. Warm two teaspoons of olive oil and stir fry one finely chopped onion with two cloves of garlic and three ounces of thinly sliced ham. Cook till the onions are soft and translucent. Add the fava beans and stir for couple of minutes before adding half a cup of dry sherry and an equal amount of chicken or vegetable stock with a teaspoon of chopped parsley. Increase the heat and cook till the liquid reduces. Season well with salt and pepper. Add a teaspoon of oil and transfer to a warmed plate.

Add a healthy touch by combining a cooked egg with the salad. Heat a teaspoon of oil in the same pan and crack an egg in it. Cook till the egg white is set but the yolk is a bit runny. Cut the egg into small pieces and toss with the beans and ham before serving. You can add roasted nuts or bread crumbs to healthy salad recipes for a nice crunch.

Grill some stone fruits for healthy dessert recipes. Grilling the fruits and serving with a topping of flavored yogurt will help you make a great dish that is also healthy.

Using an electric hand mixer beat half a cup of cold heavy cream till soft peaks are formed. Add a quarter teaspoon of ground cardamom and whisk till firm peaks are formed. Refrigerate covered till the peaches are cooked. Arrange the peaches on the hot grill and cook till grill-marked. Transfer to a plate, drizzle with the honey mixture and serve with a dollop of the whipped cream or yogurt on top.
