The Perfect Summer Salads

We have been truly spoilt with the British weather so far this year and we definitely aren’t complaining! It’s so lovely to see everyone uniting together, having bbq’s and relaxing in the sun. 

Because the weather has been much warmer than usual, here at Brock & Morten we have been turning to fresh salad’s for lunchtime options as they are quick, super easy and refreshingly light on hot summer days. 

Here are a couple of our favourites that we have been making over the past few weeks:

Salad with Balsamic Lime Dressing
