Spring has sprung and that can only mean one thing – enjoying delicious fresh flavours!

Ditch the midweek roast dinners and casseroles and tuck into scrumptious spring-inspired recipes, we’ve got meal ideas that are perfect for a midweek dish.

A simple quality extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing can really enhance your food and without any fuss!

Here are our top three recommendations:

Tuna Jacket Potato

Our midweek go to meal, whether it’s for lunch or tea is a classic jacket potato.

It’s a hearty and healthy dish that’s simple to prepare and equally just as easy to pair with an infused olive oil to give it an ‘out of this world’ taste. Our favourite jacket potato pairing has to be tuna seasoned with Lemon Olive Oil instead of mayonnaise, it’s a match made in heaven. Try this and you won’t look back….

With jacket potatoes being so versatile you can, of course, substitute your own favourite filling and use your own creativity to decide how to enhance it (i.e. baked beans with Chilli Olive Oill!)


Next on this list of our spring meals is this fresh, herbaceous, vegan salad from the Middle East.

Tabbouleh has a reputation of being all about the Bulgar wheat, but really in the Middle East, the focus is on the herbs, especially fresh parsley, it’s filling as a lunch or a light dinner. We love to dress our Tabbouleh with our delicious Mint Olive Oil and Pomegranate & Fig Infused Balsamic Vinegar.

For a salad that is popular around the world, it’s not surprising that there are many variations, each tasting as amazing as the next. If you haven’t tried this dish before, why not try our version of this amazing recipe here .

Thai noodles

Our final spring surprise is Thai style noodles. This deliciousness is one of the most popular dishes in the world, it’s bound to be – it’s simply scrumptious!

Even better, Thai noodles are quick and easy to make during a midweek rush. A few simple added ingredients can really make it a crunchy fresh and flavoursome spring meal and it can easily be taken to the next level simply by adding a drizzle Lime & Chilli Olive Oil just after serving, to add a tangy zing to your noodles.

We have put together a quick and simple recipe for making Thai noodles, check it out here.

You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces this spring – just good food made from fresh ingredients and dressed with great olive oil and/or balsamic vinegar!
