We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it’s associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease

Method

You'll need a selection of freshly picked lettuces such as round lettuce, oak leaf lettuce, lamb's lettuce, watercress, cos lettuce, little gem lettuce, chicory and radicchio (about 4 large handfuls). You'll also need a jam jar dressing of your choice.

To wash your salad leaves:
When you get your lettuces home, remove the roots and any not-so-nice outside leaves first, then click or tear off the rest of the leaves and give them a good old wash in cold water. Once they’re clean, give them a spin in a salad spinner or shake them dry in a tea towel.

To store your salad leaves:
If you line a salad crisper drawer in your refrigerator with a couple of clean kitchen towels and lay your leaves on top, covering them with another towel, they’ll keep there happily for 4 days. This way you can simply make up your own mixed salads, dressing the leaves with one of my jam jar dressings.

To dress your salad leaves:
Pour the dressing from a height and gently toss the leaves, using the tips of your fingers, until every single leaf is coated.
