    I love this fresh mango and tomato salsa recipe. It's easy to whip up if you're expecting a crowd. Serve with tortilla chips or with barbecued chicken breasts.

    Fresh ripe figs are stuffed with goat's cheese, wrapped in vine leaves, roasted on the barbecue, and drizzled with honey. For extra flavour, skewer the figs on rosemary sprigs. Most supermarkets sell vine leaves in brine. If you can't find them, you could wrap the figs with prosciutto instead.

    This salad has the perfect combination of flavours and textures. It's fruity, sweet, tangy and crunchy. Lettuce is layered with pears, Roquefort, avocado and spring onions, drizzled with a mustard dressing and scattered with caramelised pecans. It's the perfect summer salad to be enjoyed anytime of the year. Serve as a side dish or starter.
