Warm Potato Salad with Lemon and Chive VinaigretteServes 4-6

Warm Potato Salad with Lemon and Chive Vinaigrette

This recipe can be served warm, as an accompanying vegetable, or cold as part of a group of salads – in which case you still need to pour on the dressing while the potatoes are warm.

 
 
Tropical Fruit Salad in Planter's PunchServes 8

Tropical Fruit Salad in Planter's Punch

Fruit salad with a kick, based on a Caribbean cocktail of rum, fruit juices and spice: a mouthwatering way to end a summer meal and a good recipe when entertaining.

 
 
Thai Grilled-beef Salad with Grapes - sponsored by Singha BeerServes 4

Thai Grilled-beef Salad with Grapes - sponsored by Singha Beer

This recipe was given to me by chef Norbert Kostner at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Bangkok when I visited the cookery school there. It's lovely served as a first course or included in a cold-buffet menu.

 
 
Brown and Wild Rice Salad with Dried CranberriesServes 12 as part of the buffet

Brown and Wild Rice Salad with Dried Cranberries

Good old rice salad is an absolute must at a buffet party. This one, made with wild rice, looks very pretty with the jewelled colours of the dried cranberries and nuts.

 
 
White Bean and Tuna Fish Salad with Lemon Pepper DressingServes 4 as a main course or 6 as a starter

White Bean and Tuna Fish Salad with Lemon Pepper Dressing

As it uses mainly storecupboard ingredients this nutritious salad is a good recipe to have up your sleeve for busy days.

 
 
Broad Bean Salad with Pancetta and Sherry VinegarServes 4 generously

Broad Bean Salad with Pancetta and Sherry Vinegar

The fresh broad bean season seems to be so short, I always feel the need to feast as much as possible when I can, hence this salad. It's good as a first course or to serve alongside other salads in a cold buffet.

 
 
Vinaigrette DressingServes 4-6; halve the ingredients for 2-3

Vinaigrette Dressing

It has to be said that this is always going to be a matter of personal taste according to how much acidity you like and what your preferences are as to flavourings and so on. I seem to suffer from some kind of mental handicap with dressings...

 
 
Green Herb and Rice SaladServes 8

Green Herb and Rice Salad

This is an excellent way to serve rice, cold at a buffet party or warm with barbecue food.

 
 
Thai Bean Salad with Pink Grapefruit and Grapes - sponsored by Singha BeerServes 4, or 6 as a starter

Thai Bean Salad with Pink Grapefruit and Grapes - sponsored by Singha Beer

In Thailand, they use pomelo in salads, which is very similar to grapefruit. I have used pink grapefruit here, but when they're not available, you could ring the changes and use a thinly sliced, medium-sized mango.

 
 
Poached Quail Egg Salad with Watercress and Tarragon SauceServes 6

Poached Quail Egg Salad with Watercress and Tarragon Sauce

This lovely summery salad is extremely easy to make and looks really impressive when entertaining.
