Summer food

I love this time of year , no more stews or soups, winter is about winter warming foods, food that makes you feel good on a cold dark winters evening, but now the summer is here and now its about taste and colour. Using produce fresh from the garden and each week having something new ready to pick. 
In the garden now I have 3 types of lettuce, strawberries and radish, add melon and ham, the sweet melon and the strawberries, the salty ham, peppery lettuce drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, and crunchy radish.

Cold pork with apple

Buffalo Mozzarella, tomatoes and spring onion.

Slice everything up, sprinkle with Basil and pour on olive oil and leave in the fridge for an hour.
Serve any of the recipes with a medium Rosé or a Kir made from Muscadet, its what summers are made for.
