Whether you’re in a rush and need to whip up something lightning fast, or are tired and in no mood for complicated cooking, we recommend trying out one of these quick and delicious salad recipes!
Bruschetta is far too often associated as a starter you’d enjoy at an Italian restaurant, but who’s to say it can’t be a brilliant main course too? Perfect for when time’s not on your side, the beauty of bruschetta is that you can mix and match the toppings to suit your own tastes, and even add a little extra if your stomachs growling! We’ve gone for rustic freshly sliced ciabatta topped with an avocado spread, crispy salad leaves, and delicate smoked salmon. Have at it!
Perfect as a family-size side salad or even a main course for one, our leafy pesto salad with chorizo slices is a rich and flavourful dish that can be put together in a matter of minutes. The crisp, juicy chorizo and garlic combine to create a classic Spanish flavour to the dish, whilst the pine nuts, parmesan, and fresh basil and parsley give the salad a nutty, zesty zing.
A true vegetarian delight, our green bean, avocado and halloumi salad recipe is packed with nutrient-dense greens to prove that a great-tasting healthy meal doesn’t take hours to cook. Make
sure to blanch your greens to prevent overcooking and give the beans a tender crunch. Add your precooked greens to a Florette lambs lettuce and peppery rocket, before finally frying your juicy halloumi cheese and scattering with a handful of toasted seeds.
With our mackerel and quinoa salad cooking doesn’t get much easier; in fact there’s hardly any cooking involved at all. If you’re not familiar with quinoa by now then this recipe is sure to get you hooked on the delicious and nutritious super-seed that everyone’s talking about. Just boil in water and wait for it to absorb the moisture. Whilst that’s going on, slice up your cucumber, tomatoes and mackerel into bite-size chunks and add to your crisp salad leaves.
Sometimes less is more and when you’re looking for a dish that you can rustle up with minimal fuss, choosing a few ingredients that complement each other beautifully is definitely the way to go. Our mixed bean salad recipe does just that: With crumbly feta cheese, juicy sundried tomatoes and fresh aromatic spring onion transforming, this dish is simply delish!
