While serving a salad on your main dinner plate may be fine for those casual family dinners, not everyone wants their salad next to hot food, or on the same plate as a sauce-based main course. The alternative is to set out your salads on a side or salad plate. We have a great selection of salad plates that match our most popular dinner service collections, allowing you to serve anything from salads and bread rolls separately while keeping your table looking elegant with coordinated tableware.
Salad plates are much smaller than dinner plates and are ideal for serving other food too, such as bread rolls or speciality side dishes. Our everyday salad plates from the Hue range, including the dusky tone of the Hue blue salad plate or the soft, subtle colours of the Light Grey version, are ideal for your morning slice of toast or a tasty chopped apple for the kids.
Why not play around with colours? If you have a white dinner plate, why not add a bold pop of colour with your salad plates, such as the distinctive crackled blue of the Caspian Blue Reactive Glaze salad plate, or the striking Marin Matte Black salad plate?
Salad plates don’t need to be one colour, either. For a real show-stopping statement, check out the bold designs on our Marling Salad Plates, or the pop-art colours of the Beatriz collection. For something a little more subtle, the Botanico salad plates feature a leaf design that’s delicate yet contemporary.
While you can mix and match colours, it’s wise to keep to the same shape. So if your table is dressed with square dinner plates, choose salad plates of the same shape to keep the theme flowing, such as the Mercer Square salad plate, or the restaurant-standard Bennett Square salad plate.
