Most hearty and filling salad recipes call for plenty of meaty elements, like diced turkey and ham in the traditional cobb. But you don't have to rely on meat to guarantee a satisfying salad. The secret is using other proteins that deliver the heft you crave.

This recipe for a California Salad with Hard-Boiled Eggs features both satisfying protein and welcome texture in the form of toasted chickpeas and rich hard-boiled eggs. After mixing all the greens together with sprouts and radishes, round out the base with the eggs and chickpeas, and add hulled pumpkin seeds and sliced avocado to tie the plate together. When it comes to the dressing, opt for a silky homemade yogurt-chive vinaigrette for bright, fresh flavor. Bonus: This dinnerworthy salad can be on the table in mere minutes.

Meatless Monday , an international movement, encourages people everywhere to cut meat one day a week for personal and planetary health. Browse more Meatless Monday recipes.
