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
to serve
Small bunch of dill chopped

Step by step

  1. Preheat a large griddle pan and lightly dress all the vegetables in olive oil.
  2. While you are waiting for the griddle to warm up:
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
