Warm spelt salad with soft-boiled eggs, peppered smoked mackerel, goat’s cheese and Pink Lady vinaigrette
This hearty dish does double time as salad and as a main meal and the combination of warm grains, rich eggs and fish and creamy cheese mean that it’s not only winter-appropriate but it’s filling too. If you want to keep this as a side option, omit the mackerel.

Warm “kabbouleh” salad
While the suggestion here is to eat this warmed, you could easily double this and keep some in the fridge for a tasty work-from-home lunch. Feel free to add in any extra greens, like broccoli or spinach.

Potato salad with herbed chilli dressing
A potato salad, but not like you know it. This version uses a mix of potatoes and tosses them with a punchy chilli dressing. Trust us when we say you won’t even miss the mayonnaise. Serve at room temperature, or chilled, depending on what it’s going with.

Warm lentil salad with couscous and vegetables
Our favourite thing about this recipe is that aside from the lentils and couscous, you can add in anything else you please in the form of hardy greens, roast broccoli or even butternut.

Spinach, chickpea and bacon salad
The bacon might seem a little extra but we strongly recommend keeping it in there (if you eat meat) as it keeps the whole dish from feeling overly virtuous.
