250g pack chicory, leaves separated
140g pack red chicory, leaves separated
2 sticks celery, very thinly sliced, plus some celery leaves
35g walnuts, most of them broken into pieces, some just halved
For the dressing
½ small clove garlic, very finely chopped
¾ tbsp white balsamic vinegar
¼ tsp clear honey
¾ tsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp walnut oil
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Squeeze lemon juice, to taste (optional)
1 To make the dressing, put the garlic, white balsamic, honey and mustard in a small bowl. Use a fork to whisk in the oils. Season, checking the balance of sweetness, acid and oil. Add a little lemon juice if you think it needs it.
2 Put the chicory and celery in a bowl, along with any leaves you can retrieve from the head of celery. Toss with the walnuts and dressing, adding only as much dressing as you think you need.
