Be sure to get the dressing right and this recipe will make itself. The pine nuts are an indispensable addition.

I made this to accompany Gordon Ramsay's baked gammon recipe. I was a little dubious about using the carrots but their sweetness along with the dressing was lovely and they still had some bite to them. I added some fresh tarragon to the dressing and used an assortment of salad leaves instead of the rocket.
