A healthy, green, zesty side dish - Recipe from Jamie Oliver

15 mins

Serves 4

What you will need...

  • 1 spring green
  • 1-2 lemons
  • 3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
Spring greens

The method

1

Finely grate the zest of the lemon(s) and place into a sealable container.

2

Squeeze the juice of the lemons into the container, making sure to catch any seeds.

3

Add in the extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper before sealing and shaking the container until everything is combined.

4

Have a taste and see whether you think it needs a bit more lemon juice or oil – you want it to be slightly too acidic, so that it’s still nice and zingy once you’ve dressed your spring greens.

5

Bring a pot of water to the boil and cut the spring greens in half before finely slicing them.

6

Once the water is boiling, carefully add the spring greens and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender but still bright green in colour.

7

Once cooked, drain the spring greens, steam dry for a minute, then tip back into the pan.

8

Drizzle over the dressing whilst the spring greens are still hot and serve straight away. Enjoy!
