6 Vegan Salads That Will Make You Friends

That time of year has rolled around again where you pack away the trackies and start venturing out to other people’s houses. If you’re stuck for ideas on what salad to bring to the next BBQ, here are some great recipes.

From 10 minute lentil to fancy potato salads, we have a dish for every occasion.

Roasted Eggplant and Quinoa Salad with Pear and Mint


Eggplant is delicious and an incredibly versatile ingredient in cooking. I love eggplant in this roasted salad, paired with sweet roasted capsicum, fresh pear, peppery rocket, and quinoa.

It’s become one of my favourite salads to meal prep with. And I love to mix up some of the ingredients like swapping pear for crisp apple or toasted almonds for walnuts. It’s one of those salads that you can be flexible with using up what you have in the fridge. Best of all, eggplant is in season now!

The Easiest Vegan Caeser Salad


The Caesar Salad is a classic for good reason. It’s creamy, crunchy, refreshing, salty and basically hits every spot. We decided to simplify this recipe for the Vegan Caesar Salad so that you weren’t buying heaps of ingredients you won’t use again or taking 30 mins to prep and cook.  This is going to be the easiest Vegan Caesar Salad you will find, with minimal ingredients but still packs a punch that will have you doubling up on your serves.
