After this time, rinse under cold water, pat dry, drizzle with a little olive oil and wrap tightly in clingfilm before refrigerating

To make the lemon dressing, firstly warm the olive oil over low heat in a small saucepan. When warm, add the herbs and lemon peel.

For the pickled shallots, bring the pickling ingredients to a boil in a small saucepan and when simmering, add the sliced shallots and cook for a couple of minutes

7
Add the caster sugar to the pan and bring to a golden caramel and immediately remove from the heat. Add the croutons, a small pinch of Maldon sea salt, the lemon zest and a dash of lemon oil. Coat the croutons quickly but gently with the caramel and place on a tray to stop colouring

  • 3/4 lemon, zest only
  • lemon oil

  • 1 cucumber, large
9
For the green goddess dressing, dissolve the sugar in the water and reserve 25g. Pick and wash the herbs in iced water, drain and spin using a salad spinner.
