Spice up your salads with summer tableware

Imagine the scene: couples gathered around a garden table, the sun low in the midsummer sky, the clinking of glasses and the cacophony of gossip, and the table an explosion of colorful salads – red and yellow cherry tomatoes, ruby ​​pomegranates, sprinkles of mint and basil, leafy greens and crunchy greens, soft avocados, jeweled couscous, grilled peaches, charred cheese, crusty bread…

There’s something so refreshing and inviting about a summery salad selection. So this week I’ve rounded up some salad accessories to wow your guests. There are the less attractive kitchen utensils – a microplane, a salad spinner, a vegetable peeler, a cutting board, a good knife. Then you can have fun with other tableware and accessories.

Having a selection of good pottery to choose from can add value to a humble salad. Platters, bowls, soup plates – Ireland has so many creative and skilled potters and ceramists that you don’t have to look far. Rosemarie Durr, Ruth Power of Danu Ceramics, Sarah McKenna, Rebecca Killen and the team at Arran Street East are just a few whose hand-thrown bowls, platters, pots and plates are causing a stir on Irish tables.

Oliver Bonas Summer 2022 collection is a riot of bold shades. We especially love the Azur Blue Stripe Salad Plate, ideal for serving dishes to share.

Loved by party hosts everywhere, kale is to tableware what leopard print is to clothing: a bit kitschy, but surprisingly stylish. Originally made by Portuguese potter Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro in 1890, it has since been mass-produced as its popularity increased, and retailers such as Marks & Spencer and Arket have produced bowls and plates featuring the signature vegetable leaf. More recently we’ve seen pastels and mood tones, as well as miniature versions in pink, navy and two-tone (Avoca, Bloomingville, Smallable).


Cabbage bowl set, €35,
