Summer Crudités with Three DipsServes 6 to 8 people as a first course or 12 to 15 at a drinks party

Summer Crudités with Three Dips

When the heat is on, you either don't feel like cooking or even eating a great deal. This recipe fits the bill perfectly and would also be ideal at a drinks party or as a nibble before dinner.

 
 
Marinated Kipper Fillets and Potato Salad with Coriander Seeds and Cracked PepperServes 4 as a main course or 8 as a starter

Marinated Kipper Fillets and Potato Salad with Coriander Seeds and Cracked Pepper

Kippers are marinated for up to a week in a glorious mixture of spices, lemon and oil. Then all you have to do is steam some new potatoes for a very satisfying meal.

 
 
Salade NicoiseServes 4-6 as a light lunch

Salade Nicoise

This is one of the best combinations of salad ingredients ever invented. Slick restaurants often attempt to do trendy versions with salmon, char-grilled tuna and the like, but the original reigns supreme.

 
 
Chicken Waldorf Salad - The Delia Collection: ChickenServes 4

Chicken Waldorf Salad - The Delia Collection: Chicken

Not for nothing has this lovely main-course salad become a classic! Give it a try as it's a good way to use up leftover cooked chicken and walnuts, celery and spring onions add plenty of crunch.

 
 
Warm Pear and Walnut Salad with Roquefort Dressing and CroutonsServes 4 as a light lunch

This salad is a revelation - soft succulent pears, the sharp creaminess of Roquefort cheese and the dry nutty crunch of walnuts combine beautifully to make a salad that's second to none.

 
 
Mixed-leaf Caesar SaladServes 4 as a light lunch or 6 as a starter

Mixed-leaf Caesar Salad

A simple salad this, but one that has gained classic status. It's essential that you use crunchy leaves so that you achieve a balance of creamy dressing, crunchy leaves and croutons and punchy anchovies.

 
 
Warm Spinach Salad with Poached Eggs, Frizzled Kabaños and BaconServes 2 as a light lunch or supper

Warm Spinach Salad with Poached Eggs, Frizzled Kabaños and Bacon

This is actually a delightful combination of sausage, egg, bacon and mushrooms. Sorry about the chips – but you won't miss them because the salad leaves, crisp, crunchy croutons and the sherry dressing make this much more special.

 
 
Fresh Crab Salad in VinaigretteServes 2

Crab is one of those quintessentially summer ingredients: try this wonderful quick and easy salad for a real treat!

 
 
Four Star SaladServes 4

Four Star Salad

A great salad that can easily be served on its own, with crusty bread. You can use whatever ingredients you like but avocado, garlic sausage, mushrooms and lettuce are Delia's preferred combination.

 
 
Dried Fruit Salad with Yoghurt and NutsServes 4-6

Dried Fruit Salad with Yoghurt and Nuts

This recipe is full of natural, good things – there is no sugar in it as I have come to the conclusion it tastes better without it.
