Is it too early to talk about summer salads? I hope not, I’m in the mood for lighter meals after months of heavier food…

I promise it’s not just all about boring, flavourless salads either. This is a collection of lighter meals that should happily bridge the gap between the soups and stews of winter.

Recipes like cauliflower steaks, za’atar drumsticks, Thai minced chicken salad should all spark your interest!

1. Trout with Roast Beetroot & Fennel Salad

This is a simple and delicious trout starter which you can really use any type of fish when making it so it is super versatile. The zesty, freshness of the beetroot and fennel salad really cuts the richness of the buttery, pan fried fish.

2. Gnocchi with Mozzerella & Basil Oil

Homemade or store bought gnocchi will work fine here. Either way, the combination of golden gnocchi nuggets with creamy mozzarella, sweet garden peas and basil oil is a pure perfection. This makes a superb starter or a light supper.

3. Za’atar Drumsticks with Fennel Salad

For a simple, fresh supper I like to roast or BBQ chicken drumsticks and thighs and roll the hot meat in za’atar rub and serve it alongside a simple shaved fennel salad with toasted pine nuts. It results in really electric bursts of flavour and textures.

Pan fried or roasted in the oven, this makes a simple and delicious dish from a humble vegetable. For an extra touch of texture and flavour, crumble feta cheese over the top before serving.

5. Tequila Chicken Salad

I’m a bit of a lightweight when it comes to booze as my friends like to remind me on a constant basis. I’d sooner use tequila in cooking than down a shot of the stuff as in this recipe, where the tequila lends a peppery sharpness to the lime – and mint-infused chicken marinade, which will give you extra tender meat. Paired with a sweet and savoury mango quinoa salad, it may almost make you forget your late night misadventures… well, almost.
