salad recipe

The pecans and sliced mange tout add a nice crunch to this  simple salad recipe. If you prefer you could use peaches or nectarines instead apples.

Serves 4


4 pork chops, trimmed
1 tbsp rapeseed or olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
A knob of butter
2 eating apples, cored and each apple cut into 8 wedges
A handful of pecans, split down the centre
120g bag of salad leaves
100g mange tout, thinly sliced lengthways

1 tbsp sherry vinegar
1 tsp wholegrain mustard
2 tbsp olive oil


1. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan. Season the chops with a little salt and black pepper.
2. Add to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
3. Wipe out the pan with a piece of kitchen paper. Put the pan back on the heat and add a knob of butter over a medium heat.

5. Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl then add them to the pan to heat up. Season with a little salt and black pepper.
