Are you looking for quick, easy and, above all, filling salads for your next BBQ? Then you are exactly right here. 🙂 I have listed my favourite salad recipes for your next BBQ here.

It doesn’t matter whether you prefer your salad completely vegetarian or with some meat, there’s something for everyone!

And best of all, you can also simply prepare them as a main course or as an accompaniment to your favourite grilled food-weather it be some grilled Tofu, prawns, or chicken!

Grilled salads are just a healthy and delicious way to enjoy summer!

Enjoy it!

My favourite salad recipes for grilling with meat:

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a lentil salad with bacon or the classic among salads, a Caesar salad with chicken. Everyone likes them. 🙂

Lentil Salad

Lentil salad with bacon

A slightly different lentil salad thanks to the ingenious secret ingredient, pumpkin oil.

This filling salad is also suitable for barbecues in winter.

It is also ideal to bring with you, as a longer marinating time only benefits it!

Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad with Chicken

The classic among the salads, which not only tastes great when grilled!

It also tastes good with grilled shrimp, salmon or just like that.

Chicken Salad

Grilled vegetable salad with chicken

The perfect use of leftovers if there are still some grilled vegetables and chicken left. An idea from food for days.

Quickly made and simply delicious!

My favourite vegetarian salad recipes for a BBQ:

Whether fruity, classic or oriental, you will definitely find what you are looking for here. These salads are not only delicious, but also incredibly filling!

Spinach salad

Spinach salad with chickpeas

Great if you are having an oriental themed BBQ.

My insider tip: This goes best with some super juicy shawarma chicken from the grill.

Chickpea Salad

Chickpea Salad with hummus

Great on its own or with some juicy and tender chicken

Tasty, healthy and filling—definitely a win-win!

swabian potato salad

Swabian potato salad

At home in Swabia, Germany, this is the ultimate salad! And it has to be have that special consistency, which best is described as slimy (schlonzig), otherwise it doesn’t taste good. Of course, the swabian potato salad is without mayonnaise, because it has no place in this regional speciality.

It tastes best with a bratwurst from the grill.

Burrata Salad

Burrata salad with asparagus

It doesn’t take much more than that, it’s my intake on the classic caprese salad.

And if you do, a nice steak from the grill is the only thing that goes with it.

Watermelon Feta salad

Watermelon Feta Salad- ready in 15 Minutes!

The modern classic when it gets hot again. Super refreshing and simply a quick and refreshing appetizer.

Tastes great on its own or with some grilled chicken.

kale salat

Crunchy Kale Salad-healthy and easily prepared!

Fruity, nutty and perfect to take with you as it really goes with everything and tastes good to everyone.

Kale also doesn’t wilt so quickly and still looks (and tastes) crunchy after an hour. So you can easily prepare it way ahead.

As you can see, there is something for every taste in my collection of salad recipes!

And if you just prefer a green salad for grilling, I have written down my favourite French dressing recipe for you below. In addition, a homemade bread and, well, what more could you ask for.

What else is great for my next BBQ?
