As much as I adore cosy meals and warming winter recipes, the spring and summer seasons are just calling my name.
Seeing as we’re starting to see some more sun (for those of you who aren’t from the UK, sunshine here is a very exciting rarity), I thought I’d whip out those summer Mediterranean flavours. It’s so nice to be showcasing some of those seasonally summer veggies, like peppers, courgettes and tomatoes.
Mediterranean cuisine typically includes fresh vegetables, olives, feta, extra virgin olive oils and so on. These are all ingredients that I love to cook and experiment with anyway, but I couldn’t think of a better way to honour this transition into spring and summer, than by giving these classic ingredients the limelight.
A simple, flavoursome dressing is the best way to bring your veggies to life. Garlic and basil bring those delicious herby flavours, which are balanced perfectly by fresh, zingy lemon juice and red wine vinegar.
Dijon mustard brings a mild, savoury element that really ties the whole dressing together. As always, it’s important to use a good quality extra virgin olive oil, for that characteristic buttery, peppery flavour. This dressing is also sugar and sweetener free.
