It goes without saying that it’s too hot to be standing at the hob or oven much. Lately I’ve been doing the bare minimum of cooking, in the cool of the very early morning – preparing potatoes or grains ready for salads in the evening. Tomatoes and cucumbers are regulars on the table. They are, of course, delicious plain (with a little salt) but if you want to jazz them up, try this tangy no-cook Kachumber salad.
You could also add sliced radishes, grated carrot or beetroot if you have any to hand, or some toasted seeds.
