easter seasonal salad v3


500 g Jersey Royal potatoes, halved if large

150 g rainbow baby carrots, halved lengthways

200 g asparagus, trimmed

150 g mange tout, sliced

50 g mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, linseed, sesame)

1 tsp sumac (optional)

Sea salt

Handful torn mint leaves

Zested lemon strips to garnish (see tip)

For the dressing;

100 ml plant-based cream

Zest and juice of half a lemon

2 tbsp olive oil



To make the dressing; lightly whip the cream with the rest of the ingredients and some salt and pepper. Set aside until required.


Bring a pan of water to the boil add the potatoes, reduce the heat cover and cook for 8 minutes then add the carrots for 2 minutes.  Place the asparagus and mange tout in a steamer above the potatoes and carrots and cook everything for another 3 minutes.  Drain.


Whilst the vegetables are cooking, dry fry the seeds for 2-3 minutes until beginning to brown and pop. Remove from the heat and stir in the sumac and some sea salt.



Arrange the vegetables on a large platter, scatter with mint and the toasted seeds before drizzling with the dressing and adding some zested lemon strips. Serve warm, or cool and chill.

Tip: Use a zester to cut long thin strips of lemon zest and place in a bowl of cold water for 5 minutes to make them curl.
