Al-fresco dining season is on the horizon, and there’s nothing we love more than enjoying a light and fresh salad on the terrace during the glorious UAE winter.

You’ll find plenty of quick and easy salad recipes on our weekly menus, but for a sneak peek of what to expect, here’s 5 stunning salads to try for yourself.
Satay prawn salad with peppers and sesame seeds
Fresh, crunchy veggies pair beautifully with this rich, nutty sauce in our twist on an Indonesian salad. Be careful not to overcook the prawns or they will turn rubbery!
Chicken caprese over crunchy salad
Caprese refers to the combination of tomatoes, soft mozzarella and fresh basil. Always a winning combo in our view!
Salmon and feta salad with tahini dressing
This simple, leafy salad is the perfect weeknight dinner. The best part? It only involves one pan!
Warm halloumi and pesto butterbean salad
Liven up your lunchtime salads with a few slices of everyone’s favourite cheese! This speedy veggie salad is a delicious and filling option for a standalone dinner or a sharing-style dish. How will you enjoy it?
Chicken cobb salad with blue cheese and mustard vinaigrette
It’s no wonder this salad is a classic – it comes with a little bit of everything! Poaching the chicken cooks the chicken gently and keeps it moist, while preventing it from overcooking too quickly.
