BBQs, salads, fresh fruit and plenty of nibbles - honestly, who doesn’t love summer food?

It’s a great time to eat in season fruit and veg, like carrots, cucumbers and strawberries, and of course, enjoy a sizzling sausage, chicken, or beefy burger on the barbey.

But, as with all seasons, we can sometimes tend to end up making the same thing on repeat (even a BBQ every other night can get a little boring!) so sometimes we just need a bit of inspiration when it comes to making our meals.

Whether you’re after a new twist for your summer salad, ways to spice up your chicken or you’re just in need of some new healthy summer recipes, we’ve got you covered. Here, we round up nine yummy summer recipes for you and the family.
