COOKING FOR A HEATWAVE

11 September 2018

Due to the recent heatwave, Love Walk residents decided it would be useful to experiment with new recipes to help keep cool.

Top of the list was preparing some tasty chilled food for supper and decided on a couple of delicious fresh salads. First up was chilled watermelon, feta, olive, red onion, mint and parsley, followed by a Burmese cucumber, green melon, shallot, garlic, ginger, lime and herb version.

Residents spent an hour or so peeling, chopping, crushing, deseeding, slicing and dicing before making the dressings and putting it all in the fridge ready for supper. Everyone enjoyed their chilled, crunchy, refreshing supper and are keen to make them again – it definitely was the perfect food for a heatwave!
