A gorgeous summer salad that’s perfect with barbequed meats and suchlike. This one is adapted from another recipe found online because I seem to be well-placed for rather mature rocket in my garden. The nectarines set off the taste really well.
- 3 tbsp Rasberry vinegar
- 1 tsp coarse grain or dijon mustard
- 5 tbsp good quality olive oil
- sugar, salt and pepper to taste
Mix together well and pour over 2 or 3 sliced ripe nectarines and a few big handfuls of rocket leaves. I added a handful or coriander leaves once as well, which was a nice variation. Use some milder leaves as well if the rocket is too strong. The original recipe also called for toasted walnuts, but I reckon pecans or cashews would be nicer.

You know those times when you make a sauce and kind of change it everytime? Trying new combinations, quantities, whatever? Sometimes it works better than other times. This was a nice simple version of sticky sweet and spicy chicken wings that I now use exclusively.
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 3-4 tablespoons clear honey
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon Worchester sauce
- Tabasco – some amount
Cook over a low heat for 5 – 10 minutes.
Oven cook the wings at 225C in a bit of olive oil until browned, turning once. Drain the oil and dump the wings into a bowl and cover with the sauce, stirring to coat them completely. Cook in the oven another 20 to 30 minutes.
