‘White Lady’ runner beans looking good in my late summer potager

My veg patch is still producing salad leaves, spicy rocket, peppery mustard and frilly lettuce. Plus the  beans are just starting to produce, picked when tiny-an ‘unbuyable’ late summer treat. These ‘White Lady’ runner beans are delicious and the white flowers very pretty, behind them you can just catch a glimpse of the sultry, dark ‘Purple Cascade’ French beans. Another good looker for the plot. Hmm..now what to make?

This fresh salmon nicoise would be lovely for a late summer evening perfect eaten in the garden with a glass of something cold and fizzy. Ok I know I’m getting carried away here. It is highly unlikely that this will take place in Cumbria in September but perhaps we really will get an Indian summer.

This is easily put together and then whipped out to impress.

Nice and light and very zesty and so quick to prepare you will be astonished – if you get a wriggle on you could have it prepared and in the oven in 10 minutes and on your plate in 20 minutes and have lots of time left for all those other intentions…
