Salads are tasty and full of nutrients. Unfortunately, it is estimated that more than 40 per cent of bagged salads sold in the UK are thrown away. Not only the salad itself, but also the immense amount of resources used to grow the produce are wasted and the plastic bags as well. Here are some tips and tricks to put salads on the table again.
A Delicious Barbecue
A good way to use leftover salad leaves is barbecuing. Start by cutting the lettuce, cucumber, beetroot, carrot and peppers into wedges. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt/herbs/spices, and barbecue the marinated wedges. You can serve them with mayonnaise, orange zest or even toasted nuts.
