  • Large bunch each fresh basil and coriander, roughly chopped

For the dressing

  • 1½ tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 3 tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice
  • Handful fresh chives, snipped
  • 1½ tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 80ml extra-virgin olive oil

  1. Slice the veg for the salad up to 6 hours ahead but don’t dress until ready to serve. Keep under damp kitchen paper in the fridge (toss the fennel in lemon juice first). The dressing will keep for up to 1 week in a sealed container in the fridge.
