CHICORY, WATERMELON, ROAST PEPPERS WITH FETA
Serves 6 as a starter
3 red chicories
3 white chicories
Half a watermelon, diced
200g feta, diced
1 banana shallot, thinly sliced
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
1 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
1 punnet cress leaves
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
1 pinch smoked paprika
100 ml extra virgin olive oil
30ml red wine vinegar
15g Dijon mustard
1 red chili, finely diced
Salt and pepper to taste
How to do it
Arrange the chicory in single segments, then spread watermelon and feta evenly over the chicory. Next, add the red and yellow peppers, shallots, mint leaves and cress on top.
Now it’s time to get cracking with the dressing. Whisk the red wine vinegar and Dijon mustard, slowly adding the oil to emulsify. Then add the diced red chilli, plus a little honey and salt and pepper to taste, if you feel like it.
Finally, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, paprika and a good glug of the dressing.
