It's getting round to that time of year when we can forget about all those soups, stews and curries that have given us so much comfort through the long winter months. Now's when our thoughts can turn to less meaty, more veggie-based eating options. Salads, in particular, are coming onto the radar and bringing the fresh tastes of Spring along with them. Choose the right ones and you'll taste the sunshine in every mouthful. So even if the weather might not be quite as warm as we'd like it to be just yet at least we can start to eat healthy, getting ready for when it is. And we're here to help! Here are some of the best salads in London for your indulgence.
1. Daylesford Slaw - Daylesford Organic
Let's kick things off with one of the finest slaws you're ever likely to come across, courtesy of Daylesford Organic. It's positively packed with crunchy goodness to give you a real energy boost. Try it for yourself and you'll discover a list of ingredients that's certain to delight with cabbage, carrot, beetroot and spicy roasted cashew nuts.
