No one wants to spend hours in the kitchen in summer- not when we could be in the pool, or at the beach or just outside in the garden. Fresh salads are the easiest in summer so we have three super easy summer salad recipes that will literally not take you more than 15-minutes to make. I have tried and tested everyone and none of them took more than 15-minutes in the kitchen. They are also super easy- which is great because I’m no cook!

So here you are- your three, 15-minute summer salads!

Chicken Mexican Summer Salad

This is great for a big group and you can serve it with mini tortillas to help fill people up. The ingredients all combine beautifully and the mango salsa adds some extra colour. It’s easy and even the kids will eat it.

Summer salad


500g chicken

Bag of Woolworths Mexican Style Salad Kit

1 mango

1 red capsicum

1 lime

1 bunch coriander

1 red onion

1 packet of taco seasoning

mini tortilla wraps if desired


Dice up your chicken and stir-fry with taco seasoning until cooked (mine took 15-minutes).

While chicken is cooking tip Mexican Style Salad Kit into a bowl.

Dice mango, red capsicum, red onion and coriander and combine in a small bowl with lime juice.

When chicken is cooked place on top of the salad mix and drizzle with the included chipotle sauce.

Eat either as a salad with the mango salsa on the side or wrap in mini tortillas as soft tacos. I love this because it’s a full dinner that tastes amazing!

Thai Beef Summer Salad

This is the easiest salad (and probably my favourite). It’s only 2 ingredients, took me under 15-minutes and I ate it for lunch and dinner! You can’t ask for more than that in a meal!
