Using seasonal produce is really important to us, which is one of the reasons why we change our salads throughout the year. That – and because we know you love trying new things! So, with that in mind, we’ve got three new salads to introduce you to this Summer.
All of them are full of exciting new combinations, taking inspiration and flavours from all over the world. There’s something to suit every taste and mood – plus, they’re all gluten, dairy, and nut-free, as well as being vegan – so everybody can enjoy what we have to offer!
First up, our MY COCO is as tasty as it is colourful. Light, crunchy – and with a coconut, lemon, miso and tahini dressing, a little bit exotic – it’ll put a smile on your face for sure. Plus, its high content of beta-carotene makes it great for your liver, the veggies make it a great source of fibre, and the pretty colours make it great for your Instagram.

Next, we have the BROCCO BOWL – ready to satisfy your craving for greens. This salad is so moreish! The chilli garlic roasted broccoli has got just the right amount of bite, the Camargue red rice will ensure you feel set up for the rest of the day and the mangetout and sunflower seeds add that bit of crunch. And the basil-kale pesto proves that the sauce can be 100% delicious AND vegan.
And as always, it’s as good for your body as it is for your tastebuds. Amongst other things, broccoli is packed with vitamins K and C, and is a super powerful antioxidant: what’s not to love!

Finally, we’ve got the CALI VIBES, a beautiful purple-and-green, east-meets-west, spicy-yet-sweet salad. It’s a kind of fiery, healthy, delicious coleslaw. The sriracha in the dressing definitely gives it some heat, but that’s offset by the freshness of the cucumber and the sweetness of the golden sultanas and dried cranberries. It was inspired by the Asian influence on the West Coast of America, and the fusion is on point. This one’s good for your digestion, too – with plenty of fibre, vitamins and minerals. Think of it as another take on the legendary kimchi.
