Watermelon and cantaloupe ball salad with coconut milk dressing

Every year, from the first day of spring onwards, we all foresee a picnic and wait for the perfect sunny day. This is what I made recently when we went for the first picnic of the year. It’s the cool, refreshing, sweet effect of this salad is the main tempting thing and your family will be asking you to make it for every picnic.

Spaghetti with swiss chard and peas

This is a light and nutritious recipe that is perfect to enjoy any sunny evening. Swiss chard and mint I used in this recipe comes from my small back garden. There are plenty of them at the moment and my mind is in a constant process of finding ways to use them up. The beautiful red and yellow stalks of swiss chard added extra bite to my recipe, but you can use store bought swiss chard if you don’t grow them.

Ingredients
