Ingredients

  • 3plump heads chicory
  • 6 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tsp golden caster sugar

Method

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
GETTING AHEAD

Make the dressing up to a day ahead, and simply stir before using. Refrigerate the separated leaves in a plastic bag up to 4 hours ahead.
