Christmas Salad

IMG_8894.jpg

Full-on festive feels with this one..! Some favourite winter vegetables, rustled together with a Christmas twist. I haven't noted the fixed quantities here, your own judgment and it will work perfectly. This recipe was directly inspired by Gill Meller, Gather, a truly beautiful book.

Ingredients:

jerusalem artichoke

red onions

endive

crumbled stilton

toasted hazelnuts or walnuts

chopped dates

olive oil

for the dressing:

red wine vinegar, approx. 200ml

red wine, approx. 200ml

sprig of rosemary

tablespoon mild-tasting runny honey

pinch salt

black pepper

 

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Peel and slice the Jerusalemn Artichoke into 1 cm thick rounds; peel the red onion and slice into moons. Toss these with a little olive oil, seasoning, and perhaps some finely chopped rosemary or fresh thyme.

Roast for 30 minutes, or until charred and soft.

Toast the nuts simultaneously if needs be.

Combine the ingredients for the dressing in a small saucepan and place on the heat to reduce by half. You can make a larger batch here if you like, and it will keep happily in the fridge for a month.

Part the endive leaves, slice the dates, crumble the stilton, and chop the nuts.

Once the vegetables have roasted and the dressing has reduced and cooled, assemble the salad. Enjoy!
