Seven sassy salads

Emma Brown | 01 May, 2019

When I say 'salad', are you thinking lettuce, sliced cucumber and tomato wedges, with only a grilled chicken breast or hard-boiled egg to make it more exciting? Well, it's time to get out of the rut and see salads in a new light.

You don't have to look very far to find inspiration. I've done some scouting and here's my pick of 7 vibrant, exciting, scrumptious salads that will take your lunch from yawn to yay in the time it takes to unfold your napkin. (You'll never be happy with shredded lettuce again!)
