No barbecue would be complete without plates piled high with fresh salads, creamy dips and crispy potatoes to complement the grilled meats, fish and veg on offer. Why not start with a smoky homemade sauce to smother over pork chops or steaks, such as Marcus Wareing’s classic barbecue sauce, or Ollie Moore’s sticky bacon jam.
To lighten the load, a vibrant salad is the perfect choice. Alfred Prasad’s exotic mango salad is the taste of Summer, while Bruno Loubet’s beetroot salad offers some more earthy notes. Potato salads can be served hot or cold, and adding fresh herbs as Shaun Hill does in his easy pesto potatoes recipe, takes it to another level.
Our collection has plenty of simple dips such as Mexican salsas and guacamole or Middle Eastern hummus to transform any barbecue into an international affair, while flavoured mayonnaise is a simple and easy way to add an instant kick, including Pete Biggs’ wild garlic recipe.
