Blood orange, fennel and black olive salad with ricotta salata
Blood orange, fennel and black olive salad with ricotta salata | Without the ricotta, what you have here is a classic Sicilian salad. The salty olives, the anise of the fennel, a bit of extra oniony bite and the sweet tanginess of the orange work in perfect harmony in this recipe, with the cheese adding an extra little bit of creaminess. Perfect as a starter for a meal or as a side to accompany a simply grilled piece of fish or meat.

In Provence, we typically add either orange blossom water or rosewater, anise or fennel flowers to the ricotta. This particular recipe uses pastis, an anise-base

Flatbread with beetroot leaves, feta and pine nuts
Flatbread with beetroot leaves, feta and pine nuts | This savoury flatbread from Matthew Evans is the perfect picnic snack. Beetroot leaves are often thrown away, but as a relative of silverbeet, they’re perfectly edible and actually quite delicious. The obvious substitute is silverbeet, or spinach if you have it. This recipe features fennel seeds, but you could use cumin if preferred.
