Refreshing Italian Salads

When the weather gets warmer, many Italians choose a colourful mixed salad for their lunch. Not just some boring green leaves, but a colourful feast of sometimes unexpected ingredients. We highly recommend you try this crunchy mixed salad in which orange carrots and red tomatoes add a vibrant touch of colour to the greens. The typically Italian combination of rocket and parmesan gives the dish a distinctively Italian accent. The croutons add texture and taste but to avoid, you could omit for a chunk of rustic bread on the side.

Toasted bread croutons

Season with salt, balsamic vinegar and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil. This quick and healthy lunch is ready in minutes!

Salads leave so much space for you to get creative! Add your favourite ingredients and discover new combinations – there are no strict rules about salad ingredients!

Here are some of our favourite suggestions:

Green apples and nuts

Roasted peppers and anchovies

Olives and capers

Fennel and carrots

Chickpeas and mint

Boiled eggs and tuna

Chopped ham and mushrooms

Buon appetito!
