Ready to be dished up in only 10 minutes, our prawn and mango rice salad recipe (pictured) is full of fresh flavours - zesty lime, mango and chilli, with the contrasting textures of the king prawns and crunchy cucumber. It?s a really delightful recipe that you can make more of if you?re expecting a big group round, alternatively, if you?re heading to a picnic you can easily bring it with you, stored in a tupperware.
For dessert, we?ve got strawberries and cream cupcakes, an iced lemon terrine and plenty more that really capture the flavours of summer. We?ve got loads of berry recipes, as they are in season during the British summer, so they are the perfect ending to a delightful meal.
Outdoor eating is very sociable, so we?ve got some great dishes that can be easily shared; tear and share breads for example that are great with some good dips and accompaniments, so you can pair them with things like houmous or even guacamole. The leek and goats? cheese loaf is a favourite as it?s full of flavour and a really great combination of creaminess, soft bread, and crusty outside. It?s an absolute delight to both make and eat.
Whether you?re looking for a healthy, delicious salad, a simple tart recipe, or something meatier, we?ve got your outdoor eating menu sorted. We?ve got everything from mains to desserts and lets not forget about the cocktails, which we love to sip in between!
