Summer is on its way, so why not shake things up in your kitchen and give yourself a taste of Europe?

Greek Salad

Easy to make with simple ingredients, you wouldn’t think that this fresh yet hearty salad would pack the punch that it does. Nothing is more evocative of sun-drenched lunchtimes sat beside the sea in Greece. We are big Jamie Oliver fans here at dealchecker, and his Greek Salad recipe is a real treat.

Spaghetti with Wedge Clams

Pasta shouldn’t work as the temperatures soar but it really does – some days it’s all that we’re left craving. This tasty Italian recipe calls for wedge clams and a dash of spice. We love that the clams whisk us (mentally at least) off to the seaside, where the sea breeze dances and the sun shines. Tuck in!

Poached Eggs and Parmesan Cheese Over Toasted Brioche with Pistou

Take inspiration from France with this indulgent breakfast. This recipe is sure to put bog-standard poached eggs on toast to shame, making it a great dish for a birthday or special occasion. The only drink to possibly pair it with is a cold glass of champagne, enjoy!

Piri-Piri Chicken

Piri-piri chicken is perhaps Portugal’s most famous export, being served in restaurants across the globe. This recipe is not too complex and can even be cooked on a barbecue, making it unrivalled as the champion of chicken dishes for summer. Go on, bring a little Portugal into your garden.

Eton Mess

When it comes to dessert, we can’t think of anything greater than the famous Eton Mess from our very own shores. With cream, strawberries and meringue, we can imagine nothing more comforting and fresh. It’s not too tricky to make either – just see for yourself.
