Easy Salad Recipes

Go straight to our recipes

Our easy salad recipes are a great choice for lunch, dinner and supper at any time of the year. It's a healthy choice and could count for as many as three of your five a day fruit and veg, which are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre. But there is even better news!

Enzymes

Because a salad has not been cooked and you are eating raw products ie ones that have not been cooked, you are receiving all the benefits of enzymes. Enzymes are vital to our bodies, in fact without them we would not survive. They kick start chemical processes which could not happen without the enzymes. So go on ahead and enjoy eating up all those salads - in fact the more the better.

Serving

Served on their own or as a side dish or with salad dressing of your choice, with some hot fresh homemade bread, what could be more perfect than a salad.

If you thought a salad was just a piece of lettuce and a bit of tomato you are very wrong. A salad can be any combination of fruit and vegetables, some cheese or even a few nuts, such as walnuts and peanuts.

French salads are an important part of the diet in France. The most common is the 'salade verte' or the plain green salad which is used most days with either the mid-day or the evening meal. Find out more at www.french-recipes-to-love.com

Washing and Buying

For your easy salad recipes use fresh fruit and vegetables which have been washed to remove chemicals and bacteria from handling. Buy organic if it's possible or even better go and pick your own home-grown ones. Organic and home-grown are so much tastier than store bought produce. Sometimes when you are in a hurry, it's a good idea to buy one of the bags of salads that the supermarkets all sell now. They include a good variety of leaves to make a base for your salads.

Don't forget to pack one of our easy salad recipes in your lunchbox to take to work. It's healthy, can be filling, depending on what's included, and will give you the energy you need to get through the afternoon. Picnics are another ideal time to pack a salad and will encourage children into a good eating pattern for life when they associate healthy eating with fun.
