Is it worth making a salad for a BBQ? Which salad pairs well with grilled delights? Discover recipes from the Fitatu® App and choose the perfect salad for your next BBQ.

As temperatures rise and days get longer, we’re all encouraged to spend more time outdoors. Often, this time is dedicated not only to activities but also to delicious food. With the onset of May, the grilling season is in full swing. Most commonly, we grill meat products. To make your BBQ healthier and packed with vitamins, it’s essential to include vegetables. That’s why having salads at your BBQ is a great idea.

Why should you prepare a salad for a BBQ?

The dishes we typically prepare on the grill are mainly meat and processed meat products. These items lack dietary fibre and valuable antioxidants. They are sources of animal protein and fat, but the amount of carbohydrates they provide is minimal. Incorrect grilling of food can increase the formation of carcinogenic substances, as we’ve discussed previously on the blog. To support your body and its immune system, it’s crucial to supply it with valuable antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. The best sources of these nutrients are vegetables and fruits. Vegetables, in particular, should be a staple of your diet and included in every meal. This is why it’s worth preparing a salad for your BBQ! Vegetables and fruits can also be grilled. We encourage you to experiment with grilling asparagus or corn. Vegetable and halloumi skewers also work wonderfully on the grill.

Salads for a bigger appetite

Salads can provide a significant amount of carbohydrates, ensuring longer-lasting satiety. For your barbecue, consider preparing salads based on rice, pasta, or legumes. The latter not only supply carbohydrates but also plant-based protein and additional dietary fibre. We invite you to explore our suggested barbecue salad recipes.
