12 Summer Salad Ideas

Ah summer, the month of barbecues, summer salads and refreshing beverages.

Whilst we all know what we prefer on the BBQ. Some like sausages, others prefer burgers or maybe you’re more into a kebab. What kind of salads do you like to accompany your main dish?

If all you can think of is a green salad, then never fear, we have some brilliant ideas for spectacular side dishes for your summer feast.




Oh the classic potato salad, but this with a twist!

If you need to carb load, this is the perfect dish. Simply squeeze lemon juice and a small garlic glove into your mayo and mix. Cover your new potatoes with the mayo mix and sprinkle with chives.

Bon appetit!



Everyone loves coleslaw and it’s actually pretty straight forward to make.

Just combine shredded carrots with shredded cabbage. Then mix with mayonnaise, salt, pepper, vinegar, sugar, sour cream (if you wish), onion, some herbs (like chives) and mix together. You can also add mustard for extra kick.

Simple and classic but a sure fire crowd pleaser!

Simply take a selection of gorgeous cherry tomatoes, slice in half or leave whole and dress with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Tear up fresh basil and scatter over the tomatoes. Season with pepper and even add mozzarella for a decadent twist.



Simply boil the green beans for around 5 minutes, before taking off the heat and putting to one side. Once cooled, cover in oil and balsamic vinegar, season with pepper and mix together.

Add a squeeze of lemon for a citrus flavour and don’t be afraid to add some crispy bacon or smoked pancetta for an extra kick.


Spring Salad And Tortilla



Chop up some of your favourite vegetables, such as aubergine, courgette, red onion, peppers, tomatoes and sweet potatoes.

Cover in olive oil and garlic and roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes. Once out, let cool and crumble feta over the top. Serve immediately – delicious!



A gorgeous summer combination.

Just cook your peas, squeeze over lemon juice, season with pepper and tear off mint leaves. Mix together and enjoy.

Roast your aubergine with oil in the oven, before letting cool slightly and adding to a bowl of peppery rocket. Sprinkle over pomegranate seeds and enjoy the pop of colour.

Sweet and savoury at it’s best!
