Naturally, Summer is all about hydration and food plays a vital role in that. I love the eloquence of summer dishes – zesty salads, fragrant summer soups, piquantly spiced fish and meat (eaten al fresco if we are lucky). Life seems freer, somehow, and dishes follow suit as we can afford a little more spontaneity.
This Yellow Courgette, Herb & Feta Salad really is a 5 minute meal that bursts with summer flavour. Herbs lend such flavour and depth to dishes and enliven our senses, so take full advantage of summer herbs such as basil, coriander, parsley and mint (grow these in your garden or a window if you have can)  – try my Cucumber Herb Gazpacho.
