Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 pack/250g of Asparagus tips.
  • 1/2 a cup/35g of Samphire.
  • 1 Courgette/Zucchini, sliced very thin length ways.
  • 1/2 a cup/35g of Broad Beans, I defrosted and peeled frozen.
  • 1/2 a cup/35g of Peas, I defrosted frozen.
  • Handful of Fresh Mint Leaves
  • 60g/3 cups of Fresh Watercress
  • 1/2 a cup/35g Sugarsnap Peas.
  • 2 tbs Toasted Pistachios
  • 2 tbs Toasted Pinenuts
  • Dressing
  • Juice and Zest of Half an Orange
  • Juice of half a Lime
  • 1 tsp Dried Chilli Flakes
  • 2 tbs Rapeseed/Olive Oil
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • Pinch of Cracked Black Pepper

Instructions

  1. First up, fill a large bowl with cold water and add a hand full of ice. Then set aside.
  2. Bring a large saucepan of water to a rolling boil. Add a pinch of salt. Then add the Asparagus tips. Be careful not to over cook the Asparagus, so after 30 seconds add the Peas, Broad Beans & Samphire. 30 seconds later remove everything from the saucepan and quickly plunge them into the bowl of ice cold water. This stops them cooking completely. After a minute in the cold water, remove everything and set aside. You should be left with super green Asparagus, that is tender & has a beautiful bite to it.
  3. Pre heat the a griddle pan and add a little oil, grill the courgette pieces on each side until charred nicely.
  4. Meanwhile mix together the dressing ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
  5. Once the courgette is grilled & dressing is made. Its time to construct the salad!
  6. Grab a big mixing a bowl, add the Watercress, Mint, Sugarsnaps, Asparagus, Samphire, Beans, Peas, Nuts & Courgettes…basically add everything to the bowl! Drizzle over the beautiful dressing and give it a good mix.
  7. Serve up on a big plate and dig in!
