Melon and Ham with Chive-Tossed Potatoes
This is an easy summer recipe when you want to eat well but still want to spend more time outside than in the kitchen. The fresh melon salad with chive and tossed new potatoes is perfect to serve with cold cuts like ham or turkey. The mint can also be substituted with fresh basil.

Fennel Salad with Whole Barley and Crayfish
Barley is a terrific grain to use in salads. Plan to buy whole barleycorn as crushed barley has a tendency to become like gruel. I prefer to use pearl barley, which is grain cut up into smaller pieces.
The salad is also excellent when topped with warm smoked salmon.
4 portions
¾ cup (200 ml) whole hull-less barley
1 vegetable bouillon cube
1 fennel bulb
3 oz (75 g) sugar snap peas
4 green onions
2 oz (50 g) baby spinach
½ cup (100 ml) chopped dill
1 lemon, zest and juice
2 tbsp canola oil
Sea salt flakes
Freshly ground pepper
1¾ lbs (800 g) crayfish tails
Approx. ¾ cup (200 ml) grated cheddar cheese
1. Boil the barley, covered, according to the instructions on the packaging.
Add bouillon or salt toward the end of the cooking time. Pour out the excess water and let the steam release.
2. Thinly slice the fennel, sugar snap peas, and onions. Rinse the spinach and dry the leaves carefully.
 1 garlic clove, pressed
¾ cup (200 ml) Greek yogurt
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Sea salt flakes
Freshly ground white pepper
Potato Salad with Smoked Salmon and Shrimp

In the summer, I can’t get enough of these wonderful salads that feature new potatoes. For me, smoked fish is also standard summer fare, so what could be more summery than a potato salad with smoked salmon and shrimp?
Considering smoked fish has a fairly strong flavor, fruit makes a fresh and welcome addition to the salad. Here I’ve used melon, but nectarines or pears are also excellent.
4 portions
1 lb (500 g) new potatoes
½ lemon, zest and juice
2 tbsp olive oil
¼ cup (50 ml) chopped dill
Sea salt flakes
Freshly ground white pepper
1 lb (500 g) shrimp, unpeeled
¾ lb (300–400 g) smoked salmon
½ of a small melon (approx. ¾ lb / 400 g)
3½ oz (100 g) sugar snap peas
2 red onions
Boston lettuce
Lemon wedges for garnish
Dressing
3 oz (75 g) frozen chopped spinach
½ cup (100 ml) chopped dill
1 garlic clove, pressed
¾ cup (200 ml) Greek yogurt
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Sea salt flakes
Freshly ground white pepper
1. Boil the potatoes in lightly salted water. Let the steam release and cut the potatoes in half.
2. Combine the lemon, olive oil, dill, salt, and pepper. Toss the potatoes with the dressing from step six and let chill.
3. Peel and cook shrimp. Cut the salmon into smaller pieces.
4. Cut the pulp of the melon into smaller pieces. Thinly slice the pea pods and onions.
5. Lay the lettuce on a serving dish. Top with the potato salad, salmon, and shrimp. Serve with lemon wedges and dressing.
6. The dressing: Thaw the spinach. Drain through a sieve and press out all the liquid. Mix together all ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste.
