A delicious summery salad inspired by the great fresh produce I found wandering around the markets in Hossegor, France. As well as a little twist on a recipe that my mum gave me. 


For the salad:

Grate carrot, slice fennel, chop celery into smallish pieces and chop cucumber  - combine in a bowl with the greens of your choice (if using cabbage slice it as if you were making a slaw)

For the dressing:

In a jar or bowl combine dijon, olive oil, lemon juice and zest, S+P and thinly chopped mint - shake or combine well.

Dress the salad, ensuring all ingredients are thoroughly mixed together with dressing. Serve with orange pieces on top or chopped up through the salad.

Enjoy!! x 

Tips from the author

These ingredients are the ones I used today. Every time I make this salad I use different ingredients such as asparagus or zucchini thinly sliced, or grated betroot and instead of orange you can use mandarin or apple is another great alternative!
