    Cooks tip

    Try with sweet potato instead of squash or stir into rice instead of rocket for a different salad.


Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables - Drizzle over some courgettes, cherry tomatoes, peppers and red onion, then cook in the oven until caramelized.

Stuffed peppers - Halve the peppers lengthways through the stalk and remove the seeds. Place cut side up on a baking tray. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion, courgette and garlic for 5-6 minutes. Add the rice, mixed herbs and cherry tomatoes and cook for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the dressing and coriander, season to taste. Fill the pepper halves with the rice mixture and bake for 30 minutes until peppers have softened.

Roast Potatoes - Toss par boiled new potatoes in Mary Berry’s Salad Dressing and arrange in a roasting tray with a drizzle of olive oil. Serve in a salad or as a side dish.

Creamy Prawn, Avocado & Artichoke Rice - Cook wild basmati rice in boiling water until tender and drain. Meanwhile, griddle corn on the cob until slightly charred and cut off the kernels with a sharp knife, then place large raw tiger prawns on the griddle for 2-3 minutes until cooked and stir into the rice with the corn, diced avocado and sliced chargrilled artichokes in oil. Drizzle over Classic Salad Dressing, season and toss together.
