Hi there, Happy New Year! It's business as usual here on my site, but please note that the pandemic is still causing disruptions with Royal Mail, so you order might take longer to arrive, and apologies if you are still waiting for your parcel... in some areas they are taking up to a month to arrive. Please also note that I am not currently sending orders outside of the UK due to postal disruptions. I hope to do so again in a few weeks. I will have more joggers coming back into stock in 1-2 weeks. Thank you and keep safe, Lucy x

Mango, mozzarella & basil salad

Now that summer is almost on it's way (here's hoping!) here is a really light, fresh and fragrant salad that not only tastes delicious but is super easy to do!

Makes a great mid week light lunch or supper, or a starter if you have friends over!

Serves 2
What you need:
a mango - sliced, or use chopped mango from a packet
pack of fresh mozzarella - full fat! (the half fat one just doesn't taste the same)
1/2 red chilli - deseeded and finely chopped
handful pine nuts - lightly toast them in a pan until they are just turning brown
handful fresh basil - torn into little bits
handful chives - finely chopped
drizzle of balsamic glazed
drizzle of olive oil
What you do:
Arrange the mango and mozzarella on a plate. Sprinkle the torn basil, chives, red chilli and toasted pine nuts over the top. Drizzle balsamic glaze and olive oil over it all and season. Enjoy!
Top tips:
Make sure you don't burn the pine kernels - they will taste very bitter!
My husband loves this with parma ham
