This amazing Tandoori Chicken Salad, from Chef de Home, is gonna be part of your menu plan for your next BBQ or picnic party. The chicken, marinated overnight develops lots of flavor from the spicy yogurt marinade and the sweet mango dressing can be made ahead and will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator. Cashew nuts add an extra crunchy, nutty note to the salad, which is best served with naans and any combination of veggies on the grill.

Yogurt Chicken with Mint & Feta Salad

Almost too pretty to eat, this vibrantly colourful fruit salad from, Once Upon A Chef, will provide the ultimate {not-too-sweet} ending to any over indulgent meal. Suitable for vegetarians, you can make this ahead and chill until ready to dish out alongside a platter of dainty mignardises. It is best to keep it simple and elegant with individual portions served in verrines and topped with a cloud of whipped cream. If you want to go for a tropical twist, it won’t hurt to have a few mango or pineapple chunks in there and skip the citrus syrup for a splash of coconut water.

3 large navel oranges, skin and pith removed

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus more to taste

  • Place strawberries in a serving bowl. Cut off the top and bottom of each orange so they sit flat.

  • Using a sharp knife, work your way around to remove all the skin and pith from each orange.

  • Working over the serving bowl, carefully cut the segments out from between the membranes.

  • Over a separate small bowl, firmly squeeze remaining membranes to release the orange juice.

  • Add lemon juice and brown sugar to the fresh orange juice and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
