Shoppers can snap up extra large avocados and smokey shredded beetroot at the new Salad Creations Bay

Major supermarket Tesco has announced an exciting change to promote healthy eating across the UK.

The art of salad-making has taken social media by storm, with Britons filming their salad creations for the world to see. In response, the supermarket has made it easier for customers to find all the ingredients in one place via a Salad Creations Bay.


Tesco said: "From this week salad fans will be able to find a new fixture in the produce aisle allowing them to do just that.

"The bay will be divided in three sections offering shoppers the opportunity to select a base such as a lettuce and peashoot salad bag, a builder such as avocado, and a topper such as dressing or sweetcorn salsa to make their perfect salad."
