Episode Description

Summer Salads

It’s summer and Jamie’s garden is producing row after row of gorgeous lettuce and salad leaves. Jamie starts with an explanation about the basic principles of dressings and makes a simple green salad. Herbs are a brilliant part of a salad or summer dish and Jamie makes a herb and tomato crostini. Brian and Jamie look at what can be grown in a small space – they’ve grown rocket in welly boots, mixed leaves in boxes and lettuce in old bathtubs. There’s no excuse for not growing some greenery - even if you only have a windowsill at your disposal, you’ll be inspired to have a go. Using a variety of leaves from the garden Jamie uses them to form the basis of a lovely roasted peach and bresaola salad with feta and a yoghurt dressing. The wood oven at Jamie’s Essex home looks like Tuscany on this beautiful summers day and the rustic Caesar salad Jamie makes in it is a perfect shared lunch.
