Fruit Salad with Savoury Dressings

I love fruit. I live for fruit. I'm powered by fruit! When fruit is properly ripened, it can be one of the best things to eat, so when you combine all your favourites together in a fruit salad, it can be a revelation.

How about balancing all that sweet with some sour lime, spicy chilli and cooling mint? Or what about using a secret ingredient that pairs perfectly with fruit? No one will ever know that it's vanilla adding that mysterious yet familiar flavour.

Grilled Ratatouille with Fresh Basil

You can add a delicious spin to this classic group of Mediterranean flavours by grilling the vegetables instead of stewing them. For bright bursts of flavour I like to add lots of fresh aromatic basil leaves too. Next time you fire up your grill try preparing this recipe first, it’s the perfect side dish for grilling season. What a great way to fill half your plate with vegetables and all your plate with grilled flavour!

Spicy Coleslaw

Coleslaw is a classic pairing for pulled pork, primarily because of the crunchy texture contrasting against the soft pork. Plain cabbage can come along way with a bright dressing. My secret ingredient is fennel seeds, but it can be swapped out for your favourite herb or spice. As long as you start with mayonnaise and add something sour and something sweet, your coleslaw will taste great. It will be delicious as soon as you make it, but will taste even better the next day after the ingredients have gotten to know each other.

Asparagus Hollandaise

Asparagus Hollandaise

There are a lot of reasons to eat asparagus. It's green, it's healthy, it's tasty and delicious. And perhaps the best reason to eat these tender, slender stalks is because they're traditionally served with Hollandaise sauce. Here's everything you need to simply steam asparagus and extravagantly transform butter into the richest, silkiest, smoothest sauce known to man.

Steaming asparagus and other green vegetables is always a better option to boiling. Boiling takes away texture and leaches away flavour, colour, and nutrients.

Spanish Omelet with Pickled Cherry Tomatoes

This traditional tapas bar snack is sometimes served between two slices of rustic crusty bread. It’s just as delicious served plain. Either way, the bright pickled tomatoes steal the show. This is the sort of dish you’ll quickly come to crave.

Golden Rice Pilaf

This is one of my favourite variations on a classic rice pilaf. It's spiced up with vibrant curry, colourful saffron, and succulent sweet potatoes which, ounce for ounce, are one of the most nutritionally dense vegetables readily available.

For a meal befitting of the lords and ladies in your life, pack this fragrant rice into small bowls and ramekins, then inverse onto the serving plates. Top with a sprig or two cilantro before surrounding the rice with some sautéed shrimp or steamed mussels.
