We make all our own salads fresh for your event, all our salads are provided packaged into convenient ‘clamshell’ type containers that can be used to serve the salad in – or even better transfer it to a nice bowl of your own. All our salads are designed to be eaten on the day of purchase, but if kept chilled they will be happy in the fridge for another day.

We recommend a total of between 175 grams and 325 grams of salad per person as part of a meal. The actual amount you need will depend on whether it’s a lunch or a dinner and of course the other food that you have available too – not to mention the eating preferences of your guests.
