    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes

    Serves: 4


    1 tsp coriander seeds
    ½ garlic clove, crushed
    ½ tsp Dijon mustard
    2½ tbsp lemon juice
    4 tbsp cold-pressed rapeseed oil
    2 small, red-skinned apples, such as gala or red delicious
    100g radishes
    1 large fennel bulb, trimmed, fronds reserved
    4 red chicory bulbs, bases trimmed and leaves separated


    1. Toast the coriander seeds in a dry frying pan set over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes until fragrant and lightly browned. Crush in a pestle and mortar or with the base of a sturdy jar. Put in a small bowl with the garlic, mustard, lemon juice and oil. Whisk together with 1 tbsp water and season.
