Allotment salad

Make the most of new season's asparagus and radishes in a vibrant salad with a French-style dressing. Great for a barbecue


For the dressing



  • STEP 1

    To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and season well.

  • STEP 2

    Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and fill a bowl with iced water. Cook the asparagus for 2 mins, then transfer to the iced water with a slotted spoon. Cook the beans for 4 mins and repeat, then do the same with the broccoli (cook for 2½ mins) and peas (cook for 1 min). Drain and pat dry with kitchen paper.

  • STEP 3

    Tip into a bowl with the radishes, cabbage, spring onions and mint. Serve the dressing on the side.
