Salad and sandwich fillings

This brand new range of chilled salads from Calder Foods is a must-try this summer. Each salad is ideal for use on a salad bar, or as a grab & go option for lunch time and as a side salad sitting perfectly next to a protein.
While the beetroot brings a great colour to the beetroot lime honey quinoa salad, quinoa is very on-trend as a source of protein. As for the pesto quinoa and wheatberry salad, pesto is still a popular flavour choice and it goes perfectly with the quinoa and wheatberry giving your customers a great burst of flavour. Orzo pasta is being seen on menus more and more and paired with the roast tomato this pasta salad is light and fresh.

Sandwiches are still a popular lunch option due to their price, ease to make and versatility. Whether you are a pub, restaurant, healthcare provider or workplace caterer, sandwiches are an easy and effective option for your lunch menus.
New in this month are four new chicken sandwich fillings. They are delicious and use on-trend ingredients that will look great on your lunch menu. What’s more each sandwich filling comes ready-to-use, meaning you need less prep time in the kitchen for sandwiches, giving you more time to focus on other menu options.
