BBQ Salad Ideas

We all love a BBQ but it can quite a 'hands on' affair and is often not the easiest choice as many of the elements need to be prepared on the same day. We are all about making cooking and entertaining as easy as possible and so here we share our favourite BBQ salad ideas that can be made in advance to ensure you can actually have some fun at your own al fresco party.  Easy salad recipes are good ones to master as you will use them time and time again and will provide plenty of inspiration for healthy lunch ideas.

Easy Salads

We love easy cooking at Spice Pots and the following easy salads can all be made a day in advance, leaving you plenty of time to man the barbecue and chat with your guests.

Simple Potato Salad Recipe

A simple potato salad recipe with no mayonnaise, making it perfect for any vegan guests but your non-vegan guests will also love this - it's a refreshing change from the traditional mayonnaise potato salad.  It's lovely and fresh with the herbs and zingy from the addition of the lime juice which elevates the aroma of the gentle spices.   Simple Potato Salad Recipe

Kachumber Salad Recipe

Kachumber is an easy make-ahead Indian salad.  It's simple to make and you can change up the salad vegetables as you like. An Indian side dish that will go with almost everything!    Great as a BBQ salad to keep things fresh and light.  Kachumber Salad Recipe.

Carrot Salad Recipe

A lovely, fresh tasty grated carrot salad that goes beautifully with BBQ Tandoori Spiced Chicken skewers and our Easy Coriander and Mint Raita.  Combine for a delicious starter or meal.  This easy salad recipe freezes well too and makes a gorgeous sandwich filling added to grilled chicken or halloumi.  Carrot Salad Recipe.

Tomato and Lentil Salad Recipe

A filling and delicious salad which works well at all times of the year alongside grilled meats but is also a lovely accompaniment for a BBQ or summer meal.  

Get ahead and make the salad the day before as the flavour improves over time. And for a shortcut, use pre-cooked lentils from a tin/pouch.  Take the lovely leftovers to work in place of your usual sandwich.  Tomato and Lentil Salad Recipe
