The heat is at it’s peak and cooking is now quite a chore due to the scorching weather so I suggest keeping it simple, cold and easy to serve. Most people are on holiday this week, enjoying long lie- ins, swimming time and meeting up to have a good chat on our long traffic jams or the start of the football league. If you are up to it, prepare this light menu and make a big splash in the pool instead of sweltering in the kitchen. Prepare lots of ice, keep your drinks chilled and keep cool and hydrated.
I suggest two dips plus crudities and biscuits, stuffed tomatoes, a green salad with fresh lettuce leaves, olive oil and some seeds such as pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, a fresh loaf of olive bread (which can be bought) and some yummy date and banana sweets.

Have fun and happy Santa Marija.
