For Salad:

1/2 English cucumber

Handful blanched green beans

Handful shaved fennel

4 blanched asparagus

Handful arugula

Handful nicoisse (frisee)

Small handful raw cabbage

1 large endive

1/2 Granny Smith apple


Freshly ground black pepper

For Dressing:

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1 tablespoon red balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup canola oil


  1. For Salad:
  2. Make sure you give all the vegetables a good rinse. 
  3. Cut the English cucumber in half lengthwise. Leave the skin on it adds loads of vitamins, great color and a nice crunch. Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds, and then cut the cucumber into thin, two-inch sticks. Toss in the blanched green beans. I like to leave them whole. Add the fennel. Slice the blanched asparagus into thin, 2-inch sticks. Add then with the arugula, and the nicoisse or frisee lettuce. Finely slice a small handful raw cabbage. Peel off 8 endive leaves toss them in as they are. Slice the Granny Smith apple into thin 2-inch sticks. Season with a good pinch salt and ground pepper.
  4. For Dressing:
  5. Whisk the Dijon, maple syrup, red balsamic vinegar and canola oil together. 
  6. Season to taste. Leftovers can be kept for a few days in a sealed jar in your fridge. Just be sure to give it a good shake before using.
  7. Serve the salad tossed with the dressing.
