“I can’t believe you missed the BBQ last Saturday, the salad was to die for,” said nobody……ever!
Salads really are the unsung hero at BBQs. No one really comments or remembers them, especially with the roasts, ribs and patties hogging all the glory.
But have a barbecue without a salad, and it will be sorely missed. Even my lettuce-avoiding daughter will start to ask what happened.
So, I’ve rounded up 5 of the most delicious BBQ salads I could find on my online travels. Rustle up one of these and, just perhaps, it will be your salad that gets everyone talking!
