Salads, Sides and Store Cupboard Essentials!

This category is a bit of a catch all, you will find everything from sides, to salads and pickles to sauces. Given that we grow a huge amount of our own produce we try and set it aside and use it throughout the barren months of winter and early spring.  I try to not produce too many preserving recipes in any single year as I reckon I could post a new one every week from May through to October!

Smoked Pork Loin Salad

April 27th, 2018|Pork Recipes, Sides, Salads, Bread and Other Stuff|

  This wonderfully filling salad utilises a much-underused meat, smoked pork loin, wonderfully tender, smokey, perfect alongside the honey and mustard dressing. You Need Smoked Pork Tenderloin In Your Life! Smoked pork loin is an ingredient I don’t see very often when floating around the internet. But it is one that I see all the time here in stores. I have been using this smoked pork tenderloin as the meat [...]

Kinda Caprese Salad

August 8th, 2017|Sides, Salads, Bread and Other Stuff, Vegetarian Recipes|

Here I go again playing around with classical dishes which I am sure will horrify some. Of course a classic Caprese salad is a wonderful thing the cream milky mozzarella cheese with sweet ripe tomatoes and almost metallic basil is a match made in heaven, all I have done is added a little spinach, balsamic and popcorn… “Whoooahhhh, hold on” I hear you shout you added popcorn?

Panzanella Salad Picnic Perfection

July 14th, 2017|Sides, Salads, Bread and Other Stuff, Vegetarian Recipes|

As a Brit I am almost obligated to point out that a Panzanella Salad is the second best way to use up older 'stale' bread, naturally the best way is of course bread and butter pudding... But you are pretty hard pushed to enjoy a bread and butter pudding on a summers day on a picnic, a panzanella salad on the other hand is a completely different matter, it is perfect for a picnic.

Orange and Harissa Salmon with Fennel

May 30th, 2017|Fish and Seafood Recipes, Sides, Salads, Bread and Other Stuff|

I have no idea if this harissa salmon dish is a salad or not, but given that I am not much one for labels who cares, one thing it most certainly is though, is a delightfully light yet filling summer dish rocking the spicy aromatic flavours of harissa and rosewater mixed with orange and fennel.

Towering Foolproof Yorkshire Pudding

December 20th, 2016|Sides, Salads, Bread and Other Stuff|

I cannot believe you can buy frozen Yorkshire pudding, they join the likes of frozen baked potatoes and roasted potatoes foods most ridiculous products, I am not averse to taking the odd short cut but buying frozen Yorkshire pudding to save the 90 seconds it takes to mix together 4 ingredients is mental.

Blue Cheese and Onion Salad with Arugula

June 24th, 2016|Sides, Salads, Bread and Other Stuff, Vegetarian Recipes|

I know many people see salads as something boring and a bit of a thrown together dish, I disagree... I think that a salad deserves every bit as much attention paid to it as any other dish so there are a few processes in this blue cheese and onion salad but none of it is difficult and the final dish is well worth playing around with.

Minted Pea Salsa With Grilled Lamb Leg Steak

June 21st, 2016|Al Fresco Cooking, Beef & Lamb Recipes, Sides, Salads, Bread and Other Stuff|

Here I am back in my garden with another recipe and as far as I am concerned a really exciting one, having a nice piece of lamb too cook is always a treat for me but in this recipe the vibrant and summery pea salsa is arguably the star.

Cherry Duck Salad with Spinach and Radish

June 3rd, 2016|Chicken & Other Bird Recipes, Sides, Salads, Bread and Other Stuff|

This duck salad is 100% inspired by my garden at this time of the year, although whilst I do have ducks in the garden rest assured none were harmed in the making of this recipe. It is the time of year when our garden sounds like a scene from ‘The Birds’, starlings adore cherries and the first of our cherry trees is now heavy with ripe fruit. Which now means that said tree now looks and sounds like a starling tree.
