Even though this salad is pretty basic I’ve put a method on just for guidance.
– 1/2 an ice berg lettuce
– 1/2 cucumber
– 2 carrots
– 8 radish
– 1 large tomato
1. Separate the lettuce leaves, wash off once then leave to soak in water for 5 mins.
2. In the meantime wash off all the other ingredients and start preparing the salad. Drain the water off the lettuce and leave to air dry.
Cucumber: peel skin and slice into circles.
Radish: top and tail (remove both ends) then cut into quarters
Tomatoe: blanch (place into boiling water for 8 seconds and then into ice cold water to remove skin) take off the skin and slice.
Carrots: peel both carrots, cut off the ends and slice into strips.
3. By now the lettuce should be dry so all you need to do is roll up a few leaves at a time and cut every 2cm.
I feel like the best part is arranging the salad onto your chosen serving dish, I have picked an oval shaped plate which fits every on perfectly.
There’s a lovely array of colours and the salad looks simply delicious!
