Summer Salad Ideas

Every summer barbie needs a side of salads! Whether that's a classic coleslaw or potato salad or something zhooshed up with nuts, seeds or fruit. Here are some ingredient ideas for you to reference whenever you're feeling a little less creative with your "5+ a day"!

Veges

Spinach, rocket, lettuce, kale or try charring or grilling some broccoli, eggplant, peppers or courgettes!

Nuts & Seeds

Almonds, pine nuts, walnuts, cashews or try some sesame, sunflower or pumpkin seeds. 

Fruits

Fresh berries are great in the summer! Try strawberries or blueberries. Grapes, apple, pear are an easy sweet addition. Segment citrus fruit like oranges or grapefruit. Pomegranate seeds add a ruby gem pop of colour and are great for a Mediterranean slyle salad! And we mustn't forget the amazing avocado!


Proteins

Cheeses like feta or grilled haloumi.  Add extra cured meats like salami, chorizo or bacon! Even leftover rotisserie chicken can be shredded and thrown in there. 


Herbs

Add a beautiful level of freshness and are great in a salad alongside our rich barbecued meats! Try corriander, parsley or mint.
