Quick and easy - you'll never go to the sandwich shop again. This recipe has a decidedly citrus twist, but feel free to embellish however you'd like - add sultanas, peppers, pineapple, nuts, spring onion, etc.

This tried and tested curried chicken salad with cashew nuts and raisins will be a hit at your next summer casual dining event, family picnic or lazy lunch. Chicken seems to be in its element when combined with curried mayonnaise, cashews and raisins; be prepared for guest applause. This is a pretty standard coronation chicken dish, similar to that created in 1953 for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Show your friends and family why this is a dish of royal proportions. And don't forget the thick, soft bread for the next day leftovers - sandwiches are an essential part of this creation!

Specially created for Queen Elizabeth's coronation lunch, this curry-flavoured salad with a fruity rice pilaf has become a traditional summer dish. Often made with cream and mayonnaise in the sauce, this updated version cuts the fat content by reducing the amount of mayonnaise and adding yogurt.

A nutty, fruity, simple filling for sandwiches or to top jacket potatoes or salad. There are no set amounts for the ingredients - you just use as much of each ingredient to satisfy your own taste.

Why not spice up your turkey leftovers on Boxing Day with delicious fruity Sharwood’s Mango Chutney? Great served with green salad and warm naan bread or salad.

I've been making this simple spicy version for years. It is a favourite with the hungry workers in my family as it makes proper doorstep sandwiches and doesn't squidge out when they bite into them! It also works as a filling for flat pasties if you fill them and cook them while still hot out of the pan, then serve them warm. It will make 4 good sandwiches or 4 flat pasties, or will serve 2 with a green salad or cold pasta.

Here is a modern, lighter version of the traditional Coronation chicken. The familiar curry flavours and vegetables are still present but they have a Southeast Asian flavour, with spicy Thai curry paste and juicy fresh mango pieces added. This is the perfect salad for a refreshing summer lunch, accompanied by toasted naan or pitta bread.
