To prolong the summer and to enter gently in autumn, do not neglect the salads , which are still very pleasant by sometimes warm temperatures:

  • quinoa salad with cherry tomatoes, avocado and mozzarella;
  • watermelon salad with feta cheese and basil;
  • rice salad with tuna, olive, egg and tomato;
  • green lentil salad of Puy with white onions, bacon and coriander;
  • tabouleh with tomatoes and peppers.

9.      The barbecues

If you are lucky enough to have a suitable outdoor area, grilling is always quick to prepare.

They can be accompanied by a salad of tomatoes and feta, or potatoes cooked in the oven or embers.

10.      Raw fish

Finally, do not forget the fish tartares and carpaccios (salmon, sea bream ...), which can be directly prepared by your fishmonger. You will then have to take care of their seasoning.
