Fresh, filling meals-in-one: Eleanor Maidment’s summer salad recipes hit the spot for high summer.
Prawn & crunchy veg salad with peanut dressing
A fantastically fresh salad full of texture and vibrant colours.
Roasted red pepper, potato, tuna & egg salad
Inspired by the Andalusian dish patatas aliñadas, this is a wonderfully punchy salad. Try serving it with other tapas such as tortilla, cured meats, cheeses and crusty bread with aïoli.
Steak & charred corn salad with ranch-style dressing
Ranch is a creamy dressing that is popular in the States, and works brilliantly in this hearty steak salad.
Miso-ginger chicken & chopped greens
The dressing is the star, so make double and keep it in the fridge for up to a week.
Roasted aubergine, chickpeas & tahini dressing
A hearty vegan salad that is perfect just as it is, or makes a great side to barbecued lamb or chicken.
Courgette & tomato pasta salad
Great served warm or at room temperature but can also be chilled and packed for a picnic.
