For super, quick light and delicious starters, peaches and nectarines are a must go to. You can always serve slices of the fruits with a salty cured ham and add peppery rocket leaves. Strawberries and balsamic vinegar are also a winner…yes!! You can wash and toss strawberries with a few teaspoons of castor sugar then leave them at room temperature. Serve with a drizzle of your best balsamic vinegar. Sweet cherries also work just as well as with savoury foods. Belonging to the same family as the cucumbers, courgettes are best roasted, griddled or lightly sautéed in olive oil. Add them to stir fries, or grate and use in courgette fritters with some feta cheese. Beetroot, a wonderfully versatile vegetable, when roasted its favour is intensified –simply drizzle with olive oil and cumin seeds or try it raw juiced with carrots or grated into salad. There is an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables to easily help you reach your five a day. Take a trip to the farmers or vegetable market where fresh fruits in season are often available.
