Spring Salad Recipes


Spring Salads come Rain or Shine

These Spring salads really hit the spot with both warmth & crunchy freshness. They celebrate seasonal ingredients and are perfect for all weather days (which we get a lot of in England). As ever, feel free to add in any ingredients you’ve got that need using up to minimise your kitchen waste and make your food go further.

1. Hot Halloumi & Fennel Salad
This Hot Halloumi, Fennel and Apple Salad is a perfect combination. The fennel, apple, leaves and herbs make for the refreshing half and then the chickpeas and halloumi are fried up with spices and a touch of maple syrup to make them a bit sticky and sweet. If you’ve got any apples turning a little brown, then add them in to this to stop them going to waste. Make this vegan by skipping out the halloumi and upping the chickpeas.

3. Nicoise Salad with Fried Chickpeas
This salad has all the best bits of the Nicoise, plus extras and it always goes down well as a sharing main. If I don’t have radishes or cucumber, I sometimes add apple or celery for the crunch which makes it a bit of a Waldorf/nicoise hybrids.
