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.

OXO Rice and Grain Colander Giveaway

Grains and Rice are a regular and staple part of my diet and I use them a lot in my cooking. The best way to cook grain and rice is to look them  over and remove any discoloured grain or rice and any stones etc.  

Once you have done that it’s very important to wash the rice and grain thoroughly in plenty of changes in cold water to remove any starch and impurities prior to cooking. This is an important step in recipe preparation and should not be overlooked.
