Light & Refreshing Dinner Recipes To Try After The Holidays

Homemade Healthy Green Goddess Cobb Salad with Chicken Bacon and Avocado

Homemade Healthy Green Goddess Cobb Salad with Chicken Bacon and Avocado

Starting in November until the end of December, we fill our plates with a lot of heavy food. Turkeys, ham, sweet potatoes, rolls, mac and cheese, countless desserts, the list is endless. After the holiday season, take time to refresh your body and your home with the meals that you make. To get some ideas, here are some options from Gypsy Plate!


Spice up what light food means with this firecracker salmon recipe. Done in about 20 minutes, enjoy a salty, sweet, and spicy Asian-inspired sauce over salmon. Serve with rice or maybe a nice tangy side salad.

For night’s dinner needs to be even faster, make these five-minute spicy tuna avocado wraps. Wrap tuna, veggies, and as much spice as you like in a wrap, and enjoy! For a side, try some hummus and chopped veggies.


Add some fun to your refresh meals by making Siracha shredded chicken tacos. Top with slaw, lime juice, and fetta, and have a great meal! Maybe some chips and Pico de Gallo on the side to add a fun flare.

Enjoy your meal when you make this chicken cobb salad. Grilled chicken that is been seasoned to perfection, bacon, boiled eggs, avocado, and Dijon mustard dressing on top of crispy greens. A perfect lunch or dinner for a fresh feel.


Refreshing meals do not have to be salads, but can be soups too! Enjoy a bowl of this Moroccan lentil soup that is light but packed full of flavor also. Make a huge batch for dinner and to have as lunch the next day!

Vegetarian options are also more than soup and salad. Dive into a light meal with this cauliflower peas masala. Full of Indian flavor, and great for a dinner of two or for a family meal!
