Many people say that they go off their food in the heat of the summer, unfortunately this is not something that's ever affected me! There is very little (if anything) that puts me off my food. However what I can't stand is the extra heat created by cooking so given the choice I turn to meals that need less oven time or, even better - BBQ's (also, because that's a 'man thing' it means I just have to make salad!)
One of my staple dishes in the summer is this.... blatantly stolen from my friend Kelly, who made it for us not long after we moved over 3 years ago, I've been making it ever since!
Cucumber, tomato, onion, with a little bit of lemon juice, salt and mint.
I use it with many meals but one of my favourites, and easiest if there are a group of us is this....
Jacket potatoes, vegetable rice, fried halloumi, chicken, warm pitta bread and tzatziki, preferably washed down with copious amounts of local wine St Panteleimon although in this summer so far I've just been on water!
