5 Recipes To Make Salad the Star of the Show At Your Next Barbecue!

At Aemyrie, we are big fans of good food and finding new recipes to try out on our wood fired grills, especially if we can show them off later to friends and family at a get-together. However, something we have noticed at the usual British barbecue is that salad is often ignored and left to go limp in favour of other foods. So, why not try preparing new and exciting salads on your grill to make them the star of the show? We’ve picked out a few of our favourite recipes below.


Grilled Sweet Potato Salad

A great to add a bit of variety when it comes to flavours and textures; this salad is the perfect way of including some crunch, as well as delighting your taste buds with the combination of sweet potato and prosciutto.

Grilled Vegetable Salad

This vegetable dish is beautifully rustic, with subtle charred flavours and a colourful appearance. Very simple to make, this makes an attractive dish with rice, meat or fish.

Grilled Mushrooms And Carrots With Sesame

This salad hosts a range of flavours and textures, and grilling serves only to enhance the nuttiness of the mushroom and the natural sweetness of the carrot.

Grilled Peach Panzanella Salad

We’ve already spoken about how peaches are an unexpectedly perfect thing to grill in the summer, but have you tried adding them to salad? This fruity twist on the Italian classic delivers a superb blend of sweet, smoky and salty.

Grilled Avocado and Bacon Panzanella

Stone fruit not your thing, but you love the idea of experimenting with a classic dish? This Panzanella utilises the modern staple avocado and BBQ favourite bacon to create something fun and delicious.
