OXO unveils the UK's favourite salad

chicken salad was by far the most popular

When it comes to our favourite salads, we’re a nation of carnivores according to a recent survey published today.

The survey of the UK’s favourite salads by kitchen tool specialist OXO revealed that chicken salad was by far the most popular with over a third of us, proving we’re a nation of carnivores at heart.

Following behind in second and third place was caesar salad and tuna nicoise respectively, but sadly meat-free options such as waldorf, pasta and bean lagged greatly behind, disappointing our tastebuds.

And as for our favourite salad dressing, well it has to be honey and mustard according to the study, with caesar in close second. Honey and mustard was voted the number one choice in England, but in Northern Ireland balsamic came out on top. More adventurous dressings such as ranch and green goddess, the trendy dressings of choice with celebrity chefs such as Jamie Oliver, were shirked by the public in favour of the classics.

The survey also revealed that 6 in 10 of us saw ourselves eating more salad this summer, with more men converting to salad as a popular lunch or dinner choice, pointing to the fact that the call for healthier living has resonated with the public and an increasing number of men are watching their waistbands in the run up to the holiday season.

OXO’S UK Marketing Manager, said: “With our tastes becoming more ever more cosmopolitan in the UK, we thought that the European classics such as Greek and Italian salads would be the firm favourite, especially with the rise of celebrity chefs giving these salads a complete overhaul with more adventurous, seasonal ingredients.

“We were all really surprised to see that meat-free options were not in favour but perhaps the fact that more men are turning to salad is swinging the popularity. They do like their meat after all.”

For all salad lovers out there, OXO offers a range of kitchen tools to help make the preparation much quicker and easier including its salad spinner (GBP25.55), which can be operated with just one hand, and its new zesty green salad dressing shaker (GBP11.99) that will liven up your salads and have you looking like Tom Cruise in Cocktail in next to no time.
