People often ask me why I'm not enormous. Even if I do have a penchant for cakes, I think what saves me is that my idea of a perfect meal at home is some variation on this. Mesclun, tomatoes (these yellow ones from Pierre have as much vitamin C as oranges), cucumber, radishes, broad beans, slivered zucchini flowers, spring onions, chives, olive oil and lemon juice: with two tartines on spelt bread, one with Georges' goat's cheese and the other with herb-scented olive paste, what could possibly be better?

Your salad looks so colourful and inviting. Such abundance of leafy vegetables and herbs are some of the reasons why I love summer.
Yum! Your salad does look great. Even the veg in chilly Winnipeg is improving right now - we had local asparagus very late this year, and more varieties of potato than I have seen before. Yay!
Thanks Lucy, that compliment means a lot coming from you!
Nora, I think I'm a summer food person at heart, even if there is a lot to be said for slow-simmering stews and root vegetables.
That's great news, Roisin - I've been getting excited about potatoes lately too, they are so small and sweet at the moment.
You mean socca doesn't count as "salad," David?
