Pain de sucre with lemon, anchovy & mustard dressing

Side Serves 4 5 min
This sharp, salty dressing is the perfect tonic to bitter leaves. For a vegetarian option, replace the anchovies with capers: they'll have the same salty, savoury effect. This recipe uses pain de sucre, but is perfect for any of the bitter leaf family - chicory, radicchio, danedlion leaves, endives could all be used instead.

Ingredients

  • 6 salted anchovy fillets
  • 1/2 garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 200g Pain de Sucre or other bitter leaves, torn or shredded

Method

Prep time: 5 min
  • Step 1

    Grind the anchovies and garlic in a pestle and mortar, or chop both very finely.
  • Step 2

    Stir in the lemon juice and mustard until well combined.
  • Step 3

    Slowly whisk in the olive oil, a little at a time, until you have a rich, emulsified dressing.
  • Step 4

    Taste and add some salt and lemon juice if needed. Put the leaves into a salad bowl, pour over the dressing and toss to combine just before serving.
