    Ah, honey and balsamic vinegar are two of my favourite ingredients! I'm like Winnie the Pooh, I pretty much eat honey out the jar... so I love making my own salad dressings with honey. You can just put as much of each salad ingredient in as you like - the same goes with the dressing. The best way to get it right is to keep testing it and to add more of what you think it needs for the flavour and consistency that you want.

    Mushrooms' delicious distinct flavors come alive on the grill, and take the heat and absorb marinades just like meat, making them the perfect addition to any BBQ menu. If you’re looking for inspiration for that BBQ menu, try this fuss-free recipe for Halloumi and mushroom kebabs.
