Top seasonal foods to enjoy this summer

Summer is the perfect time to indulge in the rich variety of seasonal produce and create vibrant, fresh meals. Here at Lakings, we offer an array of premium meats and inspiring recipes that pair beautifully with summer’s best offerings. Let’s explore some of the top seasonal foods to enjoy this summer and how to make the most of our succulent selections.

Juicy Tomatoes

Summer tomatoes are unmatched in their sweetness and juiciness. These versatile fruits are perfect for salads, sauces, and salsas. The perfect ingredient to pair with our Restaurant Style Steak recipe. The robust flavour of the steak, cooked to perfection, complements the fresh, acidic bite of summer tomatoes. This combination makes for a light yet satisfying meal that’s ideal for warm evenings.

Crisp Cucumbers

Cucumbers thrive in the summer heat and offer a refreshing crunch to any dish – or G&T. For a simple yet delicious meal, try our Roast Lamb with a simple minted cucumber salad. The lamb, seasoned and roasted to bring out its rich flavours, pairs wonderfully with a cool cucumber salad, accented with fresh mint. It’s a delightful way to stay cool and savour seasonal produce.

Sweet Corn

Corn on the cob is synonymous with summer. Its sweet kernels are perfect for grilling, boiling, or adding to salads. Rosie’s Slow Cooked Beef Ribs recipe is a fantastic match for sweet corn. The smoky, tender ribs are a perfect pair for the natural sweetness of corn. Grill them together for a quintessential summer barbecue experience.

Leafy Greens

Summer is also a great time for leafy greens like lettuce and spinach. These greens are perfect for light salads that still satisfy. A classic Chicken Caesar Salad is a fantastic way to incorporate summer greens. The juicy, grilled chicken atop a bed of crisp lettuce, drizzled with Caesar dressing, makes for a healthy and delicious summer meal.

Eating seasonally ensures that you’re getting the freshest and most flavourful produce, which is not only a treat for your taste buds but also supports our local agriculture as well as a balanced diet.
