It's simple. It's seasonal. It's salad.

Sometimes all you want is something simple. 
Something fresh.
Something that has clean and contrasting flavours and textures.
Something like this seasonal salad.

Chicory, apple and walnut salad with an apple cider vinegar dressing
Serves one as a main or two as a side dish

1 head chicory, cut into 1cm slices
1/2 apple, cored and thinly sliced (I prefer something sweet yet sharp such as the Granny Smith variety)
1/3 cup or 30g walnuts 

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon runny honey
A small pinch of salt
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons walnut oil

  • Place the mustard, honey and salt in a jam jar and mix together with a fork or small whisk.
  • Add the vinegar and oil. Put the lid on the jar and shake until the dressing has combined.
  • Core and slice the apple and place in a salad bowl.
  • Cut the chicory into 1cm wide slices and add to the bowl.
  • Crumble the walnuts on top of the apple and chicory.
  • Toss these ingredients with half of the dressing. You can add more at the table or save what is left over for another seasonal salad.
