I love a salad like this — full of colour, crunch and flavour, yet so simple to put together. It has a rather strong autumnal feel. This is about strewing good ingredients onto a plate and reaping the benefits in the overall flavour and freshness.


  • 20 g (¾ oz) small red bulb spring onion (scallion)
  • splash of wine vinegar


Thinly slice the onion and put in a small bowl of cold water with the vinegar (this helps to get rid of the acidity in the onion). Leave to soak for 20 minutes or so. Cut the apple into 2-3 mm (1/16-⅛ inch) slices and put in a bowl of cold water with the lemon juice and a sprinkling of salt.

Cut away the thick white spine from the radicchio, then tear up or shred the leaves thickly. Div
