    What to do

  • 1. Dry toast the seeds in a frying pan over high heat. Toss regularly, and as soon as they start to colour, remove from the heat and transfer to a large bowl.

  • 2. Add the carrot, coriander and chilli, and gently toss.

  • 3. To make the dressing, place all the ingredients, along with a big pinch of salt, into a screw-top jar and shake vigorously until well mixed.

  • 4. Pour the dressing onto the salad and toss to coat. Taste to check the seasoning and adjust if necessary, then top with the avocado and serve.
