In this month's Seed To Stove Lia Leendertz is making mouthwatering meals with her favourite trio of winter herbs, chervil, parsley and coriander. Try this Middle Eastern-style salad packed with punchy flavours - the perfect weekend lunch. Serve with fluffy homemade pitta (super easy and once you've made your own you'll never go back!)
Winter herb salad
1 large bunch flat-leaved parsley
1 large bunch coriander
5 cauliflower florets
A handful of radishes
5 spring onions
For the dressing:
Zest and juice of half a lemon
30ml extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
1. Roughly chop the herbs and radishes and slice the spring onions, and put them together in a large bowl. Take the central stems out of the cauliflowers to break them up into tiny florets. Add to the salad.
2. Put all of the dressing ingredients into a jar and shake them together, then pour over the salad and mix well.
