Salads have come a long way since the days of limp lettuce and woolly-tasting tomatoes. Feast on Delia's wonderful combinations for real summer eating.
Just add bread to this lovely beany salad - a cheap and easy meal for very little money and proof that you don't need to spend a lot to eat royally.
All you need is crusty bread to mop up the juices in this superb summery salad that has more than a hint of Italy about it.
A great way to add lots of vegetables and pulses to a buffet spread - and so easy you can make it well in advance.
Anchovies, capers, parsley and olives - plus garlicky mayo - give this bean salad plenty of punch. Chickpeas and haricots verts are a brilliant source of fibre and highly nutritious. Vegetarians could leave out the anchovies.
With 30% of food being thrown away, this recipe is a good way of making sure you use up those odds and ends in the salad drawer, plus any bits of cured meat lying around! Use whatever you like - or try Delia's favourite combinations.
Use new-season new potatoes for this classic salad, with crunch added from the shallots. Serve it with just about anything…
As Delia says, this salad is a good one for winter when the summer saladings are but a distant memory. Apples, cider and Camembert are just brilliant together, and this can be served on its own for lunch or as an accompaniment.
A vinaigrette with a difference that will pep up any summery fish or chicken you might be cooking.
Based on the Mediterranean salad, fattoush, this may sound unusual but go on, give it a try! We are confident you'll fall for its gutsy, robust flavours and textures. Great with barbecue food, or summery chicken and meat.
An Italian classic with an unbeatable vinaigrette, this lovely summery vegetarian dish demands to be eaten outside with plenty of crusty bread. Try to find the very best-quality mozzarella you can, ideally buffalo.
