With summer at its peak, we know that you want meals that are effortless, delicious and light. Woolworths’ impressive range of partially prepped salads is a great way to achieve those goals, no matter the occasion.

At Woolies, you can expect only the best vegetables, grown in superb locations to deliver top quality and flavour. This includes a variety of lettuce and herbs that are handpicked with care. But before Woolies picks their vegetables, they pick the farmers, who are just as passionate about quality as they are. These farmers are also dedicated to promoting healthy soil and responsible water use, better for you and for the planet. And with Woolworths’ unbroken cold chain, your veggies will stay fresh for longer, even after you take them home.

From hosting to lunchboxes and even family dinners, there are countless ways to serve your favourite Woolworths salads. Try these 5 simple recipes that promise freshness and flavour with minimal effort.

1. Classic with a twist: rainbow Caesar salad

Who can resist a Caesar salad of crunchy gem lettuce tossed with croutons, Parmesan shavings and a creamy dressing? We’ve used Woolworths garden salad with baby tomatoes, cucumber, carrot and beetroot to add colour and texture to this classic.

2. Dining al fresco: grilled peach and burrata salad

This salad is a summer showstopper! Sweet peaches are paired with creamy burrata and crunchy leaves with peppery flavours. We recommend hosting a laid-back dinner party and dining outdoors.

3. Taco night: salmon tacos

These are the easiest tacos you’ll ever make. Add Woolworths’ avocado, feta, cucumber and leaf salad to toasted mini flour wraps and top with poached salmon. Enjoy for lunch, or set up a taco station for a takeaway-style dinner the whole family will love.

4. Sarmie alternative: summer rolls

Want to switch things up at lunchtime? Make summer rolls. Simply dip rice paper sheets in water and add Woolworths’ crunchy summer salad, tofu and mint before rolling into mini rice paper rolls. No need to bother with making a dipping sauce, just use Woolies’ Asian dipping sauce.
