We all need a few tricks to make summer meals a little bit easier. I like pulling a jar of something out of the fridge and putting it to good use. Kimchi on a cheese toastie – perfect. The last of a herb salsa tossed through boiled potatoes – delicious and easy. And really, some of the best meals come from sometimes incongruous combinations thrown together in a fit of ‘cleaning out the fridge’. And so it is with these hacks which are brilliant for jazzing up a meal or elevating the everyday. Some are best eaten on the day while others should be fine in the fridge for a week or so. I’ve added suggestions to each recipe to get you started, but I’m sure you will be able to think of many uses for each.
