Winter Salad


  1. Heat a non stick frying pan over a high heat . Add the grains and mix well to break them up. Heat them for 1 minute, shaking the pan occasionally and then add 2 tbsp of water. Toss together until the water evaporates and the grains puff up. Transfer to a bowl to cool.
  2. Blanch the cavolo nero for 2 minutes in a pan of boiling water. Drain and refresh. Squeeze out the excess water and then finely chop. Chuck into a mixing bowl and add the grains, sprouts, celery, apple and pomegranate seeds.
  3. Whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Pour over the salad and toss together. Add the cabbage lightly mix – this keeps the colours better – and serve immediately.
