Easy Entertaining

sd025-crudites-3-dips-18929 Hang on to summer

It's always sad to say goodbye to summer, so if you want to hang on to it for a few more precious days, spoil yourself with our collection of summer salads.

The vibrant colours will brighten up the day, and if the weather is kind, there may still be some lunches and suppers in the garden to be enjoyed.

Summer salads

Home-made fish cakes

Hard to resist homemade fish cakes and hard to believe how easy they are to make. These little Thai fish cakes served with a cucumber dipping sauce, are a great starter for a spicy main course.

Rosti crab cakes are perfect for a summer menu, and of course salmon fishcakes made with tinned salmon are easy peasy

Late summer fruits

Supermarket shelves are laden with packs and packs of soft fruits (all grown in the UK), at the moment. They make a simple dessert needing nothing more than a dollop of cream or fromage frais, but with some great offers around it is well worth picking up some extra for cooking with.

Here are some of Delia's recipes using strawberries, raspberries and gooseberries.

Spanish chorizo sausage, juicy prawns and chicken are all cooked to perfection with paella rice and only needing lemon wedges and hot plates to serve.

Halloumi and Feta Cheese

Bring back memories of warm sunny holidays in Greece or Cyprus with Delia's recipes using halloumi and feta cheese. Not so exciting on their own but once they've absorbed flavours when they are marinated or cooked they take on a whole new dimension and are perfect for salads, kebabs.
