Spring is well underway so we’re taking full advantage by dining alfresco! Easy to prepare on a nice warm evening is this BBC Food recipe for a Super Spring Salad


  • 12 Jersey Royal potatoes
  • 10 green asparagus spears, sliced on an angle
  • 150g/5½oz young broad beans, podded
  • 150g/5½oz peas, podded
  • 150g/5½oz fresh or frozen soy beans
  • 3 spring onions, sliced on an angle
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 4 purple asparagus spears, sliced using a peeler
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 2 shallots, cut into rings
  • 15 mintleaves (shredded)
  • small bunch of chervil
  • handful watercress
  • punnet of pea shoots

For the dressing

  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

  1. Blanch the potatoes, and slice in half.
  2. Boil green asparagus, broad beans, peas, soy beans and spring onions and cook for a couple of minutes. Drain and run under cold water to stop them cooking (but not to cool them.)
  3. Place all on a tray with the potatoes, season and drizzle the olive oil.
  4. Prepare the purple asparagus in a bowl by adding lemon juice and salt to cure and soften.
  5. To make the dressing, whisk together the mustard and vinegar in a bowl, slowly adding the oils. It should have a sauce like consistency, like a sauce. Season to taste.
