Salads & light dishes

Short on time but looking for a healthy filling lunch? Homemade salads can make a healthy, low salt alternative to sandwiches!

  • Using bases such as pasta, rice, potatoes or couscous will help to fill you up
  • Marinate meat or fish prior to cooking or cook with spices to give extra flavour
  • Steamed or tinned fish (in spring water) such as tuna or salmon are lower in salt than smoked fish
  • Use chopped fresh herbs and different homemade dressings will also add to the flavour
