Melissa’s Satisfying Salads for all weather

Image
    Hello, Melissa here! If like me, you’re in the UK, it usually means your salad needs to fit all weather and these ones really do. So here are 7 Summer salads for rain or shine; a delicious mix of hearty and wholesome with fresh and zesty. Lots of great ones to share as well as ones to make double and have the next day or take to a picnic. As ever, feel free to add in any ingredients you’ve got that need using up to minimise your kitchen waste and make your food go further.   1. Lentil Salad with Sumac Dressing This lentil salad with a delicious sumac dressing is a winner with everyone! If you haven’t been swayed with lentils just yet, maybe you will after this. A great hearty salad for a sunny weekend and great to take on a picnic too.

Jasmine’s 5 Hot Weather Refreshers

The weather may be changeable, but there have been an awful lot of very hot days around these parts lately. On a scorching day when I’m just looking to cool down, these recipes are some of my sweet pick-me-ups for keeping cool and calm.

Fennel, Grape & Mint Refresher

This is a beautifully fragrant and refreshing alternative to a summer Pimm’s, especially since alcohol is dehydrating. You just need a blender and a sieve for this one.

Frozen Grapes

The easiest recipe ever, frozen grapes are exactly what they sound like, and they are a taste sensation. You’ll wonder why you’d never frozen your bunch of grapes before.

Tamarind Juice

Ditch the cola for this sweet tangy nectar that I first tasted on my travels to Zanzibar a couple years ago. It’s made using dried tamarind pulp or fresh tamarind if you can get your hands on it.

Mango Lassi Mousse

If your sweet tooth is calling, this mango lassi mousse is just the thing. It’s light, airy and super summery, and can be made with coconut yoghurt for that piña colada vibe.

Coconut, Lime & Mint Ladoo

An easy, delicious and nutritious snack that you can make with the whole family. These Indian-inspired nut ball is super cooling for summer thanks to the coconut, lime and mint.
