We’re not one to sleep on side dishes around here. Level up your salad game with these three delicious and easy recipes.
1. Smacked Cucumber Salad
In 2006, Akon said to us, “Smack that.” We can’t be 100% sure, but do we think he could have been talking about cucumbers?
Either way, this Smacked Cucumber Salad has a chokehold on us and we literally cannot stop eating it, so thought it’d be quite rude if we didn’t share it with you too.

2. Great-for-the-Gut Green Garden Salad
Everyone needs a good, go-to green salad recipe in their repertoire, and, well, this is it!
The beauty of this salad is that you can use any salad veggie you like. Our general rule of thumb is to pick seasonal produce (you can read more about that here), but any veg will work. As long as there’s heaps of ‘em!
A wide variety of plants in your diet promotes a healthy and happy gut microbiome. This enhances our digestion, boost immunity, and contributes to overall well-being. So, load up on the veg, leafy green, herbs and seeds and you’ll be feeling tip top – promise!
3. Mexican Butter Bean Salad
There’s a lot to love about this salad.
Full of fun, fresh veggies with a zingy Mexican twist – you get ten plant foods in one (you’re welcome, gut microbes), ferments and a good dose of protein and fibre.
And, it’s so easy. Serve as a side salad, but know that it probably deserves the spotlight. Check out the recipe here.
