|for the salad
|2 tbsp olive oil
|150g radishes cut in half
|1 large bulb fennel, sliced
|200g asparagus, trimmed
|4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
|for the dressing
|1 tbsp sherry vinegar
|½ red onion, finely chopped
|2 tbsp baby capers
|Salt and pepper
|Small bunch of dill chopped
Step by step
- Preheat a large griddle pan and lightly dress all the vegetables in olive oil.
- While you are waiting for the griddle to warm up:
- Mix together in a small bowl the olive oil and sherry vinegar, then add the onion and capers, season with salt and pepper and set aside.
- Grill the vegetables on both sides in a single layer in the griddle pan, until the bar marks start to appear. This usually takes a couple of minutes. You may need to do this in a couple of batches if all the vegetables do not fit on the grill.
- Once cooked, arrange on a serving dish, season with salt and pepper, drizzle over the dressing and scatter with the chopped dill. Serve at once.
