PRIDE RAINBOW SALADS & SIDES
For those of you who want their guests to dig in and use cutlery here are some healthy ideas for rainbow salads and sides guaranteed to brighten up any main course.
Rainbow Carrot Ribbon salad
A salad that is amazing to look at and tastes great as well. You will need to source heirloom carrot varieties as they come in several colours including purple to give your salad the rainbow wow factor. Why not try to grow your own? As this is a recipe from the U.S. it mentions arugula – also known as rocket in the U.K. To make it vegan replace the Parmesan with a vegan cheese.
Raw Rainbow Pad Thai
Thai food is always a firm favourite for any dinner party and this one has plenty of extra veggies in it to make it super colourful. Although the recipe calls for a spiralizer you can just slice your veggies thinly if you don’t have one.
Rainbow coleslaw (vegetarian)
Coleslaw is the prefect accompaniment to any Pride BBQ and this recipe is so vibrant in colour. If you want to make this recipe vegan, then swap out the honey for agave nectar or other natural sugar. Plus Cilantro is known as coriander in the U.K.
