As the warmer weather well and truly settles in across Brisbane, there is no better time to savour the taste of a gourmet salad or two! Plus, as a bonus, it will balance out the upcoming over-indulgence in the fast-approaching festive season.
We’ve rounded up six of our fave salads that you need to try that don’t skimp on the delicious factor.
Ahmet’s - Sultan’s Beetroot and Fetta Salad
Ahmet’s have just dropped their new Sultan’s beetroot and fetta salad, and we are not exaggerating when we say this is one of the most impressive salads we’ve ever had the pleasure of trying. Made with the ultimate combo of beetroot, fetta, mesclun, onion, tomato, fresh parsley, and a zesty lemon dressing. And for those carnivores at heart, you can add chicken, lamb, or beef for that extra hit of protein.
Baba Ganouj - Fattoush Salad
This is the perfect accompaniment to any Baba Ganouj feast or just on its own when you are after a lighter meal option. We don’t know how they make this salad taste as incredible as it does, but it’s probably down to the perfect mix of fresh ingredients and the fried pita bread for an exceptional crunch. We’re talking, mixed tomato, onion, cucumber, capsicum, garlic, , topped with fried pita bread and fresh lemon juice and olive oil for a delicious zesty taste.
Tippler’s Tap - Fried Chicken Salad
The Tippler’s Tap fried chicken salad is for those who are wanting to put a healthy twist on a cheat day fave. Think fresh greens, tomatoes, cucumber, roasted sweet potatoes, chickpeas with a classic vinaigrette, and the star of the show, succulent fried chicken.
Zeus - Greek Salad
We couldn’t finish this list without mentioning one of our all-time fave salads! We are of course talking about the Greek Salad from Zeus. It’s hard to beat the delicious fresh flavour combo of feta, Kalamata olives, tomato, cucumber, onion, oregano, and extra virgin olive oil. We’re drooling just thinking about this delish dish…
Bake N Grill – Two Choice Vermicelli Salad Bowl.
The two choice vermicelli salad bowl from Bake N Grill has quite the reputation in these parts, and for good reason too might we add. This iconic salad bowl is made with your choice of pork, chicken, or beef and spring roll option of pork, veg, and lemongrass tofu with vermicelli, shallots, sweet chilli sauce, carrots, and cucumber. Um, yum!
Southbeach - Cajun Chickpea and Beetroot Bowl
The Canjun chickpea and beetroot bowl from Southbeach is the definition of health goals, and it delivers in spades on the delicious taste front too! Featuring Cajun fried chickpeas, diced beetroot, dry slaw, coriander, mint, alfalfa sprouts, sesame seeds, and fried shallots, served in a sesame dressing with lime. This is the perfect meal to chow down on a hot summer's day while overlooking Streets Beach and the Brisbane River.
