The UK's biggest tennis tournament is about to begin. Whether you spend it couch-side or court-side this year, put a Mediterranean spin on Wimbledon with these twists on traditional drinks and snacks
Move over Pimm's
Even champions have their day, so step away from Pimm's and make our sangria-inspired spritzer your first serve instead. Blood oranges and red grapes make a perfect doubles pairing in this gently sparkling drink. Add a dash of gin and pour over ice for an indisputable winner.
A match made in heaven
Strawberries and cream are an iconic combo for a reason, but once you’ve tried these balsamic and basil-marinated berries there’ll be no going back. Fragrant and syrupy, serve them with a scoop of your favourite vanilla ice cream – you can find the full recipe below.
It’s worth making a racket over these fresh takes on classic salads. Our in-store courgette, peas and wheat berries salad features fregola – a bead-shaped pasta from Sardinia – while our zingy potato, red onion, rocket and poppy-seed salad was inspired by an Israeli recipe.
Grand slam sarnies
Swap your regular cucumber sandwiches for these Italian-inspired big hitters. Fill toasted stone-baked ciabatta with creamy Welsh goat’s cheese and chargrilled courgette ribbons. Squeeze over a little lemon juice, then slice into fingers. Fit for the royal box.
