Healthy Salad Ideas
Northern Ireland salad ideas

Here at Willowbrook Foods, we love our salads! As Ireland’s largest bagged Salad producer, we provide the most delicious prepared vegetables and salads across Ireland. From our base in Newtownards, Northern Ireland, we are passionate about bringing our customers the freshest produce possible for their salads. With everyone becoming more and more aware of the need to implement a healthy diet into our daily lives, salads are a quick and easy healthy option. Salads provide a simple way of eating your 5-a-day in one delicious meal. 

With our years of industry experience, especially in the Northern Ireland food industry, we know all the tips and tricks of cooking up the perfect salad. Here are some salad ideas: 

Use a Mix of Greens for Texture and Flavour 

The mixture of greens in a restaurant salad elevates it as well. Luckily, these days most grocery stores sell greens mixed together already. However, it’s simple to do yourself at home too. Keep texture and flavor in mind when you mix. From classic iceberg lettuce to baby leaves such as Rocket and Spinach, Willowbrook Foods provide the best lettuce leaves in Northern Ireland. 

Mix in Fresh Herbs 

Go beyond lettuce and include fresh herbs in your mix of greens. Salads are the perfect place to use up whatever herbs you have in your fridge, but you can also lean all the way in and use leafier herbs like cilantro or parsley as a green in their own right. 

Don’t forget the Dressing

This simple trick allows dressing to evenly distribute and coat all the ingredients. It’s a nice gesture to leave the dressing on the side, so everyone can add as much as they’d like, but pouring it over your salad leaves you with pools of dressing that can overwhelm every few bites. Always remember never to overdress your salads. There is nothing worse than a salad that is completely drenched in dressing! 

At Willowbrook Food we have a comprehensive range of freshly prepared vegetables that are ready to cook and are perfect for your salad. Providing both core and added value lines Willowbrook can offer both Branded and Own Label products to meet your needs. From our base in Northern Ireland, we provide products to customers across the whole of Ireland and the United Kingdom!
