SIZZLING SUMMER SALAD DAYS
Summer Salad recipes for Sizzling Summer Days!
It’s only the beginning of June and some may be fooled into thinking they’ve woken up in the Med! Quarantined at home, glorious sunshine day after day and lovely long evenings has certainly made lockdown a lot more bearable for all at BMS and we hope for you too.
Mother Nature is certainly showing off in the Black Mountains with fledgling birds braving their first flights, cow parsley and foxglove lining the lanes and the Welsh population showing off sun tans never seen before in this formerly rainy pocket of the UK.
With many ‘work from home’ lunch breaks now taking place in the garden, we wanted to share a few of our favourite smoked chicken lunchtime recipes, for these beautiful summer days. Light, healthy, and deliciously easy lunches for you to enjoy…
CHICKANGO SALAD (CHICKEN & MANGO)
This is refreshing, light and frankly just plain YUMMY!
- Simply combine cubed mango (fresh or frozen) with our sliced smoked chicken breast. Finely chop coriander and stir in.
- Dress with olive oil and some Fino White Balsamic
- Decorate with edible flowers from the garden
- And enjoy!
SMOKED CHICKEN WRAPS
The most moreish and easy lunch, always a hit with children, (chilli content dependent) and perfect for a quick bite or a picnic!
- Using either homemade flat breads (recipe here) or simply the bog-standard supermarket wraps (equally as good!), spread Philadelphia cheese and some of our Tracklements Chilli Jam onto the base.
- Add a handful of salad/rocket leaves (plus any additional veggies you fancy)
- Top with sliced Smoked Chicken (also scrumptious with our smoked duck!)
- Roll up and tuck in!
