Delicious salads for your BBQ gatherings
Consider adding refreshing and delicious fruits and vegetables to your menu during a BBQ gathering among friends and family. Here at American Garden, we gathered some of the most exquisite salad recipes paired with fitting salad dressings for you to try:
- Chicken Caesar salad:
After topping your fresh lettuce, crunchy croutons and shaved parmesan with your favorite grilled chicken fillet, all you have to do is to drizzle a generous squeeze of our American Garden Creamy Caesar Dressing. The result is exquisite and everyone will be asking you about the special ingredient you used in your Chicken Caesar salad!
- Quinoa Salad:
If you’re looking for a scrumptious and healthy salad to add to your meal, a quinoa salad is a definite go-to. Combine quinoa, sliced tomatoes, sliced carrots and avocado. Throw in some arugula, mint sprigs, cherry tomatoes and finish it off with our American Garden Thousand Island Dressing. Et voila! you have yourself a great vegetable salad.
- Steak salad:
For a mouthwatering grilled steak salad, combine iceberg, sliced red onions, cubed green and red bell peppers and sliced tomatoes in a large bowl. Toss the whole with American Garden Italian dressing and a pinch of salt. Top your salad with some grilled steak slices and serve immediately.
- Egg Salad:
Egg salads have always been a childhood favourite for most of us. All you need is some chopped hard-boiled eggs, finely chopped red onions, salt and pepper to taste, greens, some American Garden Mustard and our age-old favorite, American Garden Mayonnaise. Combine these ingredients and serve.
- Grilled shrimp salad:
Gather your favorite green salad leaves and toss them with avocado, cherry tomatoes, pitted black olives and goat cheese. Top with grilled shrimps seasoned your favorite way and serve along with our delicious American Garden French Dressing. Everyone will ask for more!
- Chef salad:
Our American Garden Ranch Dressing adds a special touch to your chef salad and is a great addition to a healthy diet without compromising on flavour. All you have to do is drizzle a dollop of our dressing over your iceberg, corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, boiled eggs, cheese, avocado and grilled chicken. Toss your ingredients and serve. You won’t regret it and your guests will agree!
- Tuna Salad:
All you need is a couple of cans of tuna, your favourite greens, cherry tomatoes, mint, cucumber, lime, basil, grated carrots, a little bit of chopped chilli peppers and a cup of our American Garden Italian Dressing. This fresh salad is unlike the run of the mill tuna salad you’ve tasted before. Prepare your tastebuds for a tantalizing experience, this salad packs a punch of flavour!
- Pasta Salad:
Once your fusilli pasta is boiled and drained, combine it with black olives, cherry tomatoes, sliced red onions and cheese cubes. For a well balanced flavour add salt, pepper, sugar and a generous serving of our American Garden Italian Dressing. Place this preparation in the refrigerator and let the flavours do their magic before serving.
And there you have it! While these are some of our favourite salad recipes, be sure to mix and match them with your favourite fruits and vegetables. Salads are super easy to make, packed with nutrients and are a great accompaniment to any main dish.
