In summer, we usually cook lighter and simpler dishes that should exude freshness, and you will achieve that only by choosing the right herbs. Find out which plants are indispensable in summer dishes.
Cooking is incomparably easier in summer than during the colder months. Throw a piece of meat on the grill, make a salad from fresh seasonal vegetables and the perfect lunch is here. The easiest way to add a touch of freshness and full taste to your dishes are certainly spicy herbs that go perfectly with barbecue and fresh salads.
During the summer, forget about the fierce flavors of spices that we buy in stores, eat only fresh and light. We bring you a list of summer spices that you should definitely have in your household.
Coriander. It looks most like a primrose, but its taste is quite intense. It goes perfectly with dishes that are inspired by Asia. Add it to shrimp salad or make grilled meat sauce.
Basil. You can easily plant basil in a pot on the balcony so that you have fresh leaves throughout the summer. It fits perfectly in all dishes that contain tomatoes, add it to salads, even fruit ones, and of course there is the inevitable pesto.
Menta. This plant simply associates summer with its freshness. It goes well with lamb and feta cheese, as well as fruit salads and, of course, refreshing cocktails. Add a mint leaf to the chocolate mousse or lemonade and you will get a completely new note.
Parsley. An indispensable spice all year round, but in summer you use it in potato salads that will go great with barbecue as well as with couscous.
Spice. The specific taste of spice perfectly complements the taste of seafood and that is why it is so perfect for summer. Be sure to put it in your tzatziki sauce to serve with barbecue skewers.
How to properly store herbs
There are two ways to store herbs and extend their shelf life.
The first way is that when you bring herbs home, shorten their stalks and put them in a bowl in which you have poured a little water, and cover the tops with a plastic bag. This method of storage is most suitable for primrose and spice.
Store small amounts of herbs by placing them on a kitchen towel that you have sprayed a little with water, place it on a towel, roll it up and put it in a plastic bag with a cap. Roll each type of spice separately.
In this way, the plants will keep their freshness longer and you will be able to use them to the end.
