Delicious salads cool in summer The weather is far too hot for cooking at the moment so we are just about living outside with the barbecue. The salad recipes below are well worth try- ing because they are so different. There are many varied, wonderful and flavourful choices to make a memorable and very tasty salad. Courgette salad -- from Ann Wilson of Murrays Bay Warm 2 tablespoons olive oil in a frypan over a medium heat. Add fingers of courgettes and fry until golden. Remove from pan. Wipe out pan and return to heat and add 3 tablespoons olive oil, and 2 tablespoons rinsed and drained capers and 2 sliced cloves garlic. Cook for no more than 1 minute. Remove from pan and reserve. Remove the pan from the heat and add 2 table- spoons red wine vinegar, and about 10 torn mint leaves with 2 teaspoons water and a pinch of black pepper and stir. To serve, divide the courgettes, 250g buffalo mozzarella, drained and sliced, a good mix of tom- ato varieties, rocket leaves and extra mint between 4 plates. Pour over the red wine vin- egar dressing and enjoy! Fennel salad -- from Rosemary Smith of Torbay Toss sliced fennel in olive oil and lemon; season. Grill until ten- der. Mix with rocket leaves, fresh herbs, slivers of dried figs, crushed toasted almonds and a crumbling of ricotta cheese. This is a fabulous combination. I sliced the fennel using a mandolin but a potato peeler will get thin slices. We would like your chocolate homemade recipes to share with readers.
