  • 1 tbsp honey
  • A handful of mint

Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Slice the base off your lettuce. Separate the leaves. Thoroughly wash (as with all your fruit & veg). Toss with the sprouts.

  • 2.

    Peel your cucumber but save the skin peelings and add them to your leaves and sprouts. Thinly slice the peeled cucumber. Add it.

    Grate or pare the zest of your lime over the salad. Squeeze out 2 tbsp lime juice. Whisk with 2 tsp peeled and freshly grated ginger, 1 tbsp honey and 2 tbsp olive oil.

  • 4.

    Halve, stone and slice your nectarines into chunks. Add to the salad. Drizzle the dressing over. Lightly toss.

    Roughly chop the coriander leaves and stalks. Strip the mint from their stalks (use them to make tea). Roughly chop or leave whole - or go for a mix. Scatter the herbs over the top of the salad and serve.
