Last weekend, Confetti Kitchen threw a Whole30 party with Barry’s Bootcamp in San Francisco! For the month of January, Erica Stenz, our CK contributor and VP of Community, lead a group of Barry’s Bootcampers through a 30-day Whole30 challenge. Last Sunday, Erica taught a charged up full body workout (#dirty30!), then surprised the class with our spread of Whole30 salads and coconut water from our friends at ZICO.
Whether you’re hosting a #fitfam brunch with friends or just want to try some new healthy recipes, look no further than our Whole30 salad menu! If you’re not familiar with Whole30, check out our story on the basics of this popular eating program.
We shared three of our favorite Whole30 compliant salads for our post-workout salad bar. Each recipe takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and requires no special equipment.
Winter Kale Salad with Chicken
This sweet and crunchy salad might be named after popular winter produce, but it’s tasty year around. The salad is filled with thinly sliced Brussels sprouts, tuscan kale, diced chicken, apple, dates, and more. We toss everything in a clean dressing made of olive oil, lemon juice and shallots.
Turmeric-Roasted Veggies with Tahini Dressing
This hearty salad begins with sweet potatoes and cauliflower florets tossed in turmeric before roasting. Served on a bed of mixed greens, these flavorful veggies are drizzled with a lemony tahini dressing and garnished with pomegranate seeds. Turmeric not only adds a beautiful golden color and flavor to your food, but it’s also packed with health benefits.
Citrus Salad with Date Drizzle
This no-cook salad is so simple it doesn’t even require a full recipe! Just arrange a platter of sectioned oranges and grapefruit, then top with fresh mint leaves and a drizzle of date syrup (see our mini-recipe below). If you’re not sticking with Whole30, you can sweeten it up with honey or agave nectar.
We love this tutorial (method 2) on how to section grapefruit and oranges. What does it mean to section an orange? You’re just removing the thin membrane between the slices and the white pith, so all you’re left with are glossy pieces of citrus.
