Volunteer to bring the salad to your gathering this Memorial Day Weekend! It’s the dish where you can show off your creativity and your kitchen skills, and bring some much needed color between the grilled meats and potato chips.
Here are a few salad recipe ideas to get you thinking. If one catches your eye, just use it as a starting point, and make it your own creation to share with your family and friends this holiday weekend.
Sweet Orange & Pineapple Salad (pictured on top): Orange slices and pineapple chunks, along with veggies like carrot, cucumber, and red bell pepper, give this salad a summery color and a refreshing crunch.
Thai Corn Salad: Mix raw sweet corn kernels with diced cucumber & red onion, along with fresh herbs like Thai basil, cilantro, and mint. Then season with a mild flavored oil, lime juice, and sprinkles of our Thai Sriracha Sea Salt.
Fattoush (Middle Eastern Bread Salad): Save some space on the grill for flat bread. Then when nicely toasted, tear it into pieces and mix it with salad greens, and pour in a lovely, simple mix of garlic, lemon, sumac, and olive oil.
Strawberry-Spinach Salad with Japanese Seven Spice Vinaigrette: Always a party favorite, but make it extra special with this Asian style vinaigrette of soy sauce, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, honey, a high quality vegetable oil, and Japanese Seven Spice (Shichimi Togarashi).
Zucchini Slaw with Asian Vinaigrette: Using the same Asian vinaigrette, julienne a mix of veggies like zucchini, squash, and carrot to create this beautiful slaw.
Garden Salad Coleslaw with Asian-style Dressing: A sweet, salty, vinegary, citrusy salad – topped with roasted black & toasted white sesame seeds – that wonderfully complements grilled meats.
Mango Slaw with Creamy Coconut-Lime Dressing: For health, for flavor, and for fun, add more color & spice to your gathering this holiday weekend!
