It's the perfect summer meal! An inexpensive but tasty meal that all Mediterranean people know: the Nicoise salad.

So, you may find seasonal vegetables such as tomatoes, radishes, artichokes, mesclun and cébettes. For proteins, take tuna, anchovies and eggs.

Pasta with homemade pesto

3 healthy and tasty dishes - Pasta with homemade pesto

Pesto is one of the most famous sauces in the world. Unfortunately, many food companies have largely transformed the recipe into a caloric and chemical sauce. So, to go back to the traditional pesto al genovese, you'll need: a mortar and pestle, garlic, salt, basil, pine nuts and pecorino cheese (parmesan cheese will also do).

Start by adding salt to crush the garlic. Add the basil and then the pine nuts. Finally the pecorino. Mix everything with olive oil. And that's it! A simple sauce, which does not need to be cooked and which can be put on the pasta at the last minute.
