5 salads, 5 days – how to enjoy salads all week long

Salads are more than just soggy leaves and crumbled feta. After all, what’s a braai without potato salad or a burger without crispy lettuce? We show you how you can use convenience readymade salads to amp up your midweek meals.

When it comes to making dinner or lunch, there’s no shame in cutting corners. Woolworths’ endless range of prepped salads can be incorporated into speedy suppers and filling lunchboxes. Whether you’re in a rush because of load shedding or want to spend more time relaxing with the family, then these salads will help you take the fuss out of deciding what to make. Here’s how to enjoy them with every meal:

Meat-free Monday

Hit reset with a grain salad and fried halloumi steaks. This meal comes together in 10 minutes (yup, you read right) and you definitely won’t miss the meat. Woolworths Bulgar wheat & lentil salad make this meal heartier without making you feel sluggish.

Tuesday lunchbox

Pack your lunchbox with your favourite things, and choose from your favourite pasta salad collection at Woolworths. We love the tikka chicken pasta salad along with some pretzels and juicy blueberries.

Fakeaway Wednesdays

Put the phone away! Pulled pork sliders are on the menu tonight. Add some colour and crunch with Woolworths rainbow slaw. Dinner is ready in 30 minutes – faster than any takeout.

Family Faves on Thursday

We love a recipe that delivers great results with minimum effort. This sausage and tomato bake ticks all the boxes: flavourful, hearty and homey, easy and quick but best of all, it’s a one-pot meal! Serve with mash for the ultimate homemade meal.

Usher in the weekend with a family braai. Jazz Woolworths classic potato salad with crispy onions, and smoky bacon bites and add a touch of sweetness with honey or maple syrup.
