Ingredients

Metric

Imperial

Green salad

Quick lemon dressing

1

Bring a large pan of water to the boil with a big pinch of salt and prepare a bowl of iced water beside it. Cook the broccoli for 4 minutes then plunge into the water to chill and preserve the bright green colour

2

Repeat with the green beans for 3 minutes and mangetout for 1 minute, adding to the iced water again to chill. Once the vegetables are cold, drain 

  • 50g of green beans, trimmed and halved
  • 50g of mangetout
3

Use a mandoline or vegetable peeler to shave fine ribbons of cucumber and place them in a bowl with the blanched vegetables and fresh peas

4

Make a quick dressing by whisking the oil and lemon juice together (it probably won't emulsify, that's fine.) Add the lemon zest and season with salt and pepper

5

Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss to combine evenly, then add in the salad leaves and herbs

6

Arrange the salad onto a large platter, or straight onto your plate
