Ingredients

Nothing beats using your own fresh produce or materials around the house.
If you’re missing a thing or two, tick the items you need to add to your shopping list.

What to do

  • 1. Bring the vegetable stock and two tarragon sprigs to the boil in a medium saucepan over medium–high heat.

  • 2. Blanch the broad beans for 2 minutes then, using a slotted spoon, remove from the stock and immediately transfer to a bowl of iced water. Remove the outer skins of most of the larger beans, leaving the smaller ones intact for a touch of bitterness.

  • 3. Bring the stock back to the boil and blanch the peas for 4 minutes, then strain and cool in the iced water.

  • 4. Finely chop the remaining tarragon leaves and place in a medium bowl with the blanched broad beans and peas, mint, a pinch of salt and pepper and half the olive oil.

  • 5. In a separate bowl, combine the vinegar, ginger, lemon juice and remaining oil, then toss through the shredded radicchio. Mix this through the broad bean and pea mixture.

  • 6. Transfer the salad to a serving platter and dot the queso fresco or ricotta over the top.
