Lovely things in July

Lots of sun, allowing us to enjoy the outdoors, socialise with friends in our back garden, and seeing as a summer holiday is off the cards, attempt to get a British tan. More importantly for the chefs and home cooks out there, July is the month we start to see some stunning seasonal produce.

This is delicious, summery salad is sure to be enjoyed over and over again. It only takes mere minutes to prep, then all you need to do is sit back and wait for the oven to work it's magic on these seasonal ingredients.

Serves 2

Ingredients

1 bulb fennel, cut into chunks
1 red onion, cut into chunks
200g green beans, ends cut off
60g rocket

Dressing

2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 lime, juiced
2 tsp honey
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced
 

To serve

1 handful chopped coriander
1 handful chopped mint
Spring onion, finely sliced

Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees. Spread the onion and fennel evenly over a baking tray and spray with a little oil and season with salt. Roast for 12 minutes and then add the green beans and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes.

Mix all of your dressing ingredients together and once your vegetables are out of the oven, drizzle the dressing over and mix through the rocket. To serve, sprinkle over the chopped herbs and spring onion.

To elevate this salad you could even sprinkle over some toasted flaked almonds.
