Embracing the Summer Salad Season

Summer is the perfect time to embrace the vibrant flavours and colours of fresh produce in your salads. Summer is when fruits and vegetables are at their peak in terms of flavour and nutritional content, making it the ideal season for enjoying salads.

At, we offer a wide selection of gourmet ingredients to help you create the perfect summer salad. From artisanal and flavoured extra virgin olive oils to tapenades, pestos and balsamics, our ingredients will turn the word ‘salad’ into something exciting and delicious.

Creating Culinary Masterpieces

One of our own favourite summer salads is our own take on the Caprese salad. Made with ripe heirloom cherry tomatoes, fresh buffalo bocconcini, salt and freshly torn basil leaves, drizzled with a really good extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, it's a simple yet delicious dish that captures the essence of summer.

To make your Caprese salad stand out, try using a mixed medley of heirloom cherry tomatoes for a burst of colour and flavour. Salting them before adding the other ingredients will draw out their flavours and make your EVOO and balsamic almost soupy – the final spoonfuls of deliciousness at the end.  We’ve tried different bocconcini varieties and prefer the creamy texture of buffalo bocconcini mozzarella for a creamy texture and we have a good handful of basil ready to be picked in the garden for a fragrant aroma. Finish it off with a drizzle of our artisanal extra virgin olive oil and white balsamic vinegar for a touch of sweetness and acidity.

Pairing Perfection

No summer salad is complete without a refreshing beverage to accompany it. At, we offer a range of gourmet ingredients to help you create the perfect summer cocktails. From citrus-infused cocktail salts to dehydrated fruits for garnish, our ingredients will take your cocktails to the next level.  On these hot days, dropping a few lime, lemon or orange slices, maybe with a handful of fresh mint into lovely cool iced water will delight and be a balm for the senses.
