Summer salads

Summer salads are all about ease and freshness. Make use of the wealth of vegetables at their peak; courgettes, broad beans, spinach, fennel, peppers, peas, basil and other garden herbs will impart bold flavours with the simplest of dressings. A grating of pecorino, parmesan or a few slivers of a dry-cured ham, such as Parma ham, will add saltiness and a hint of hotter climes.

Grab a handful of your favourite salad greens and chuck in toasted nuts and seeds, cold meat and an assortment of vegetables for an easy summer supper
