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. Get the recipe.     2. The Big Chickpea Chopped Salad This was pretty much born out of me having an *ingredients check in* and trying to use up everything hiding in my fridge and cupboards before t

Christmas With Jasmine

12 days to go!!!! How does it go from “too early to think about Christmas” to “bloomin’ heck it’s just around the corner!” in a heartbeat?! Check out how I’ve prepped for this party season and the big day itself. In the run-up to Christmas 2019 I’ve created a brand new recipe for the Christmas table: a colourful roasted sweet potato wreath decorated with rosemary and cranberries that makes an impressive centrepiece, tastes amazing and is so versatile — just pop your favourite festive filling in the middle! I’ve also gathered together the rest of my celebration recipes here if you need a little inspiration. I’ll be serving the stuffed sweet potato wreath with pickled red cabbage, toasted hazelnuts and griddled apple for a delicious balance of tastes and extra crunch. I’m also getting down with some bake-off therapy and gifting delicious little baked bites in ribboned jars to friends as an eco gift that I know will go down a treat! I’ve got two new festive recipes, one for all-t
