    Shopping tip

    Choose an English-style salad mix, with shredded lettuce leaves, grated carrot and raw beetroot, or a combination of slightly bitter leaves such as frisée, chicory and radicchio.

    …taste tip

    Although most bags of salad leaves are ‘ready-to-use’, if you have time it's best to freshen them up by rinsing them thoroughly with cold water, then draining well or whizzing in a salad spinner.
