The Royal Family has shared an easy salad recipe from the royal kitchens to mark the end of National Gardening Week.

The post, which was shared to the official Instagram account, reads: ‘Are you growing mint but not sure how to use it? Click through for an easy salad recipe from the Royal Kitchens.’

‘You will need…a selection of tomatoes, a few sprigs of fresh mint, olive oil, salt and pepper, a sprinkle of sugar and some balsamic vinegar if you would like.’ 

The post, which was shared with their 7.2 million-strong followers, began by explaining that mint is very easy to grow at home – whether it’s in a garden or a window box.

They then went on to offer further advice from the RHS for anyone hoping to grow their own mint from scratch.

And the method is just as simple as the ingredients. Firstly, pick a few sprigs of fresh mint, wash the mint and tomatoes, before slicing the tomatoes and tearing the mint.

Then, drizzle over the olive oil and add the sugar, salt and pepper, before adding a dash of balsamic vinegar if to your taste.

The post went on to encourage those trying out the recipe to share their kitchen garden creations.

It comes a week after the Royal Family shared a series of photographs revealing the blossoming flowers in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

The post read: ‘This week we’ll be celebrating National Gardening Week…and with the help of the @royalcollectiontrust, you can make your own garden indoors. The flowers are blooming in every colour in the Buckingham Palace gardens.’

A series of colourful snaps followed – including the likes of pink Evergreen Azalea, Canary Bird Rose and Rhododendron, Orange Azalea and Wisteria.

The post went on to reveal an activity for parents and homeschoolers to get involved in amid the coronavirus lockdown.

Asking if followers were ‘feeling inspired,’ the post then shared a swipe up link which explained how anyone from the age of six plus, with adult supervision, can partake in making their very own paper flowers.
