Who said salads are boring? With exotic ingredients like papaya, Thai basil and ginger, a salad can be both inspiring and delicious! Explore our twists on this summery staple and discover a refreshing mix of flavours that take salad to a new level. We’ve put together three of our summer salad favourites packed with vibrant flavour.

Pick up an unripe papaya! Believe it or not this gem of a fruit has cucumber-like flavour and crunch. Dressed with garlic, chilli and peanut, this simple ingredient can transform your salads. Bulk it up with some sticky rice and you have a classic street food staple straight from the streets of Bangkok.

Transform a midweek favourite – mince - with our recipe for Laab, the unofficial national dish of Laos. It’s packed with chilli and Thai basil for a spicy, liquorice-like kick. Wrap the tasty meat mix in gem lettuce and enjoy a fragrant and filling dish straight from the busy street stalls of Vientiane!

Rustle up a quick and tasty Asian Salad with your family’s veggie favourites straight from the fridge for a tasty lunch with crunch! We’re thinking fresh cucumber, carrots and baby corn drenched in a sesame, soy, ginger and jalapeno dressing. This salad is an easy way to get more veggies into your family meals and pretty much any combo will work.
