Peach and Mint Salad

Peaches are now in season and I particularly like the ones with the white flesh that are firm and great for salads. The slight tartness from the semi ripe peach with the crunch from them makes this salad really lovely to eat and it's the perfect accompaniment with a platter of freshly baked bread and cheeses.

I love salads that use fruits in them, as they make a refreshing change and are perfect for al fresco dining. Other fruits that can be use in salads are apple, pineapple and citrus fruits too. For example do check this delicious Mandarin orange slaw- lad recipe its great for barbecues.

In the summer I love to create easy recipes to serve for lunch.One of my families favorite appertiser is bruschetta with a tomato salsa. It is really delicious served as a starter or as an accompaniment to a salad, or pasta dish. Personally I am happy to eat it by itself  for my lunch.

Strawberry and Dark Chocolate Ice cream Cake

July brings the start of Wimbledon and watching tennis cannot be done without a glass of Pimms and Strawberries.
I love strawberries with cream, in desserts, in pancakes and particularly in ice cream. This really easy homemade strawberry and dark chocolate ice cream cake is lipsmacking good and it will make your enjoyment of watching tennis even more exciting. Don't be fooled this ice cream cake has no cake in it, its just layers of delicious creamy ice cream with strawberry compote and a layer of dark chocolate
