    Radish, blue cheese and juniper salad

    This simple salad is delicious as an accompaniment to meat or fish, or just as good on its own with crusty bread.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes

    Serves: 8 as a side


    300g breakfast or mixed radishes
    3 Little Gem lettuce hearts
    50g walnut pieces
    12 juniper berries
    1 tbsp white wine vinegar
    4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 tub essential Waitrose Salad Cress
    50g Danish Blue cheese, crumbled


    1. Wash and trim the radishes.  Cut the Little Gem lettuce hearts into thin wedges, discarding the root.  Cut the radishes into thin slices.  Scatter the Little Gem wedges and the sliced radishes over a platter.
    2. Warm a frying pan over a medium heat.  Add the walnuts and dry-fry for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant and starting to colour.
    3. Finely chop the juniper berries and mix with the vinegar, oil and some salt and pepper, then whisk together.
    4. Drizzle the dressing over the salad then cut the cress from its roots and scatter over the top together with the walnuts and cheese.  Serve immediately.
