These two minty salad recipes came from the June edition of the Observer’s Food Magazine. I made them a few weeks ago and they’re both excellent: light and summery and a good alternative to the usual mix of coleslaw, potato salad, and leaves (not that this particular combo doesn’t have a time and place).
The first, Aubergines in Honey, is a beautiful, very presentable, combination of flavours. The feta compliments the sweet honey, while the pomegranate seeds add colour and texture. The other, a salad of Mozzarella, Courgette, Lemon and Mint, is light and uplifting. I served the Aubergines in Honey as a starter for some dinner guests and it went down a treat; the other salad would also make an ideal starter.
