Filling salad recipes

These colourful and vibrant salad recipes are seriously filling. Forget bowls of limp leaves that leave you hungry. Our filling salads are substantial enough to eat for dinner.

We’ve got juicy chicken salads, protein-packed fish, prawn, beef and lamb salads, plus plenty of vegan and vegetarian options loaded with goat’s cheese, feta, halloumi, tofu and veg.

Choose salads with pulses, beans or wholegrains. Fill up on salads with root veg like sweet potatoes and new potatoes. Our filling salads are packed with seasonal ingredients, so there’s one for every time of year.
