Nando's is of course most famous for its chicken. But you can't just have chicken with a side of chicken, can you? ... Or can you?
Either way, it's good to have options, and the restaurant has introduced a range of new sides and salads to go with your chicken - or go without your chicken if you're vegetarian (the salads are apparently big enough to be eaten as a standalone dish).
Indeed, the new additions are perfect for veggies, as they're all meat free.

If it's really hot, then the watermelon and feta salad may be just the ticket. The chain describes it as 'a mouth-watering combination of chargrilled slices of watermelon and pickled watermelon chunks served on a bed of baby spinach with black olives, cucumber and a generous sprinkling of feta'.
Alternatively, if you're one of those people who goes to the gym, the 'grains 'n greens' salad may suit you; apparently it's 'a hearty helping of mixed grains, beans and corn, served on a bed of baby spinach, and topped with long stem broccoli'... So that should be good if you're bulking... or would that be good if you're cutting? (I don't go to the gym).

There's also a new house salad, which is comprised of the old familiars: lettuce, chargrilled peppers, baby plum tomatoes, cucumber and olives.
But if you're just looking for something to sit next to your chicken, then the sides look pretty tasty. The 'saucy spinach' is cooked in spicy tomato and coconut sauce with chickpeas.
They're also offering up a butternut squash and sweet potato side, as well as a long stem broccoli dish for those among you who simply can't abide by broccoli without a lengthy stem.

The salads are priced between £6 and £7.25, and two chicken breasts or thighs can be added for £3.30. The sides are £2.60 for a regular and £4.60 for a large, though the sweet potato and butternut squash side is only available in one size at £3.45.
The new options were launched today, so if any take your fancy, you know what to do. However, this news is arguably far less exciting than yesterday's bombshell announcement that Jet 2 will be serving Nando's on its flights.
