Spring and summer produce mean your restaurant has a wealth of fresh vegetables and fruits to incorporate into your menu. One tasty, refreshing, and healthy dish that always appeals to health-conscious customers is salad—but don’t limit yourself to just garden and Caesar salads. Here are some fresh summer salad ideas using our in-season fresh produce. Turn up the flavour on these healthy sides or add some protein to make tasty and filling meals.
Blue Cheese and Olive Pasta Salad
If you’re a huge fan of blue cheese, boy, do we have the salad for you! In under 30 minutes you can create an entrée salad that is high in protein, sugar-free, and perfect for hot summer days. You’ll need to stock up on our fusilli pasta, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper, green onion (chopped), blue cheese, green grapes (sliced), and black olives (sliced). First, boil and prepare the pasta. In a separate bowl, mix the mayo, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and then add the rest of the ingredients. Toss everything together, and voila! This dish tastes best cold, so store this in your fridge for a few hours before serving.
Mexican-Style Chicken n’ Corn Salad
If you love Mexican cuisine, you’ll love this zesty salad! At our wholesale store you’ll find all the ingredients you need, including red onions (chopped), cherry tomatoes, avocado (sliced), canned corn (grilled), salad greens of your choice, crumbled cotija cheese, and cilantro for garnish. For the dressing, you can choose from our selection or make your own by mixing ranch dressing with chilli powder, lime juice, and salt.
Greek Summer Salad
Lastly, for a Mediterranean spin on a traditional side salad, you can mix up a Greek salad. All you need is to stock up on our cucumbers, white or red onions, black olives, sundried or fresh cherry tomatoes, and feta cheese. You can choose from our selection of salad dressings or create your own using apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, poppy seeds, and extra-virgin olive oil.
