Next time you grab lunch, you should choose:

Mostly As – Caesar salad

Tried and tested recipes are your forte; the longstanding classics, the backbones of the foodie world, the dishes you’re most likely to find on menus. Creamy dressings and sauces are your go-to, while you think anything tastes good with cheese on top. Some would say your choices are predictable, we say you’re clever – you know what tastes good, and that’s that. No. Fuss.

Mostly Bs – Kale, walnut and parmesan salad

You’re always keen to hop on the latest culinary trend. Remember the fascination with chia seeds? Quinoa? Avo toast? Oh course you do, you were probably the first person to incorporate them into your diet… and take a few #Instafood happy snaps. Popular kale and crunchy walnut means this nutritious salad is practically made for your plate and looks great overhead with a filter and some hashtags to boot.

Mostly Cs – Beetroot and sweet potato spiralised salad, Thai salmon spiralised salad, or carrot, courgette and nut spiralised salad

Veg is delicious but it’s even tastier when in the form of something else entirely. You might be a bit rebellious when it comes to food, trying new and inventive ways to enjoy it; a little bit of this, a little bit of that. By your standards, there is always more than one way to use an ingredient and always several ways to serve it. Sound familiar? Well, there are three curly wurly salads to choose from (based on your personality, we didn’t think one choice would suffice).

Mostly Ds – Greek salad

Fresh, light meals are your bag – flavours of the Mediterranean are your calling. You love to season, especially with herbs and a squeeze of lemon juice; in your eyes, you can never over do it and anyone that argues with that feta know better.
