Homegrown early summer salads

Since lockdown started I have been making a few new salads that I haven't made so much before, dictated, largely, by whatever is growing/ in season/ available in the farm shop. Some have worked and been lovely, and others, not so much.

I thought I'd share some of the better ones with you. These aren't recipes as such, more just ideas of things I put together and worked well.

I'm writing in June, and June has seen the strawberries coming thick and fast, the start of the raspberries, the redcurrants as well as the geraniums, mint and basil that had already started flowering.
This salad is just a super quick one that I threw together with the contents of the bowl above as well as some feta and then tahini and date molasses (around a tablespoon of each).

The next salad, which really is barely a salad, is a tomato and herb salad. The tomatoes have just started coming and while I only have small ones so far they are super tasty and I am picking them each day now. I think tomatoes this fresh, preferably picked still warm from the sunshin, straight from the vine, only need some olive oil, basil and salt and pepper so their flavour can really shine. I've been having lots of just that, sometimes with some bread as a sort of open sandwich but piled high.
