There are so many good things about summer… but at the top of the list for me are salads. I love salads. Healthy, tasty and usually quick to prepare.
When I started looking through the Belgian food blogs for salads, I was completely overwhelmed by the choice, it was very difficult to pick my top 5, but here are my favourites:
Let’s start with a new take on a classic salad; The Brussels Cook(er) has de-constructed the Chicken Caesar… doesn’t it sound fantastic.
Want to try something Portuguese? Why I Am Not Skinny has a Portuguese Black Eyed Bean and Tuna Salad, which I could eat over and over again.
For a substantial ‘dinner salad’ check out this great dish from Going to Brussels Toasted Quinoa, Lentil and Poached Salmon Salad
Whether you are a vegetarian or just trying to cut down on the amount of meat you eat VaneValentine‘s Grilled Halloumi and Mint Pesto Salad is for you.
For something a little different God Mat has put together a Kohlrabi and Beetroot Salad with Honey and Mustard Dressing. I love the way the colours look on the plate!
And I thought as a little bonus, I’d give you my favourite salad from my own blog Very Hungry Explorer, Lentil and Couscous Salad
Let us know which one is your favourite.
