There are very few days in our house that don’t have meals involving some kind of salad, and most of these will include citrus in one form or another, even if it is just by way of a quick whisk of olive oil and lemon juice. Citrus take us through the seasons – limes pretty much all year round, lemons from spring through to autumn, and all types of oranges and mandarins throughout the winter months. At one point I used to consider citrus in winter as a replacement for tomatoes, and it is true that oranges feature more heavily in my salads when good tomatoes are scarce. But I was excited to discover how wonderful lemons and tomatoes can be together – each brings out the sweetness in the other as well as providing some acidic balance.

The recipes in this chapter more than in any of the others are real snapshots for me – salad at home is never the same twice. It is usually a case of opening the refrigerator – or in summer, if I’ve been organised, strolling down to the bottom of the garden to the raised beds – to see what needs using up and what might work well together. It also means that the recipes can be quite elusive and hard to pin down when it comes to writing them up, which is why recently I could be found on the telephone pleading with a friend to recall exactly what it was I had put in the lobster salad. So in this chapter above all others I cannot be prescriptive. Please use the recipes to inspire: do not feel you must follow each one to the letter.
