Mandolin salad

Serves 6 as a starter or side

  • 200 g soft goat's cheese

  • 50 ml milk

  • 3 large raw beetroots, different colours if possible, such as golden, candy and red, peeled and trimmed

  • 2 apples

  • rapeseed oil

  • cider vinegar

  • ½ bunch of fresh mint, leaves picked and finely sliced

I'd recommend investing in a mandolin. The beauty of them, as you'll see in this simple salad, is that they quickly turn something frumpy into a thing of beauty.



Whizz the goat's cheese and milk in a food processor until blended to the consistency of thick cream. Season to taste, then spoon over a large platter.



Finely slice the beetroots and apples (cores and all) using a mandolin. Toss them together with a little drizzle of rapeseed oil and a tiny splash of cider vinegar. Pile it all on top of the goat's cheese mix, sprinkle over the mint and serve immediately.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
