Ingredients

  • 3 plump heads chicory

    Chicory

    chik-or-ee

    Also known as endive, chicory is a forced crop, grown in complete darkness, which accounts for…

  • 6 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tsp golden caster sugar

Method

  1. Separate the chicory leaves and put them in a serving dish. Mix together the oil, vinegar, mustard and sugar with salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the leaves and toss with a spoon and fork so that all the leaves get coated. Serve straight away, before the dressing has a chance to discolour and soften the leaves.
