Top 5 Salads

I love salads all year round. They make great side dishes, entrées or even light meals with some crusty bread. In my opinion these are the best salad recipes from around the world.


Insalata Caprese Italy

Insalata Caprese is my favourite summer salad, as it’s only worth making when you can get delicious ripe tomatoes. Use delicate buffalo mozzarella, not rubbery tasteless cow’s milk fior di latte, and assemble it an hour or so before serving – its best at room temperature.


Potato Salad Germany

Potato salad is my go-to dish for barbecues and any family gathering as it travels well and is delicious with virtually everything. Use a waxy potato that won’t disintegrate and add plenty of hard-boiled egg and peppery chives. Crisp pancetta is optional (I love its salty punch).


Spicy Slaw USA

Coleslaw travelled to America with Dutch immigrants (‘koosla’ is Dutch for ‘cabbage salad’) and is now popular everywhere, especially in the South. It keeps well, even improves after a day or two, and lends itself to variations including a bit of spice. It’s great picnic fare.


Chopped Salad Middle East
www.food-wine-travel.com/chopped-salad/
This delicious salad keeps well for days in the fridge as there’s no delicate leaves to wilt. Add black olives and Feta for a classic Greek salad, or toss in anchovies, red capsicum, dill, oregano or any other herb you fancy. This is one of the best salad recipes to serve with grilled meats.


Salade Lyonnaise France
www.food-wine-travel.com/salade-lyonnaise/
This simple salad from the city of Lyon is one of my favourite entrées. Tender frisée leaves are tossed with crisp speck, croutons and a warm mustardy dressing, then topped with a poached egg so the runny yolk can bring it all together.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

The whole Be Inspired experience has helped me love cooking again. I was sick of cooking the same old things - meal time is a lot brighter thanks to you Roberta.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.

Loving Be Inspired! Felt like a kid opening up a Christmas present when the box arrived. Fresh herb pots are a nice touch!

Thanks so much for the Fresh & Easy Meal, it was excellent. We regularly get another meal kit delivery – your offering is vastly superior and a similar price, so big ticks.

I'm a competent cook whose learned so much from the Recipes+Videos Packs. The recipes are yummy and Roberta’s video guidance offers so many little tips to improve flavour and organise the flow of preparation. I enjoy her warmth, sense of humour, and ability to giggle at herself when she occasionally messes up.
