Crudites

Method

  • Heat the red wine vinegar in a large pot. Then add the cabbage with seasonings and toss until it begins to wilt. Remove from the heat.
  • While the beetroot is still hot, peel, chop and toss with a good squeeze of lemon juice, a slurp of oil and seasonings.
  • At the same time, cook the chats in lightly salted, boiling water until tender, adding the beans for the last few minutes. Drain well.
  • Toss the grated carrot with the juice of ½ lemon, seasonings and a little olive oil.
  • To make the vinaigrette, whisk a slurp of white wine vinegar with the garlic, mustard and seasonings. Then add equal quantities of vegie and olive oils, little by little, continually whisking to reach sauce consistency.
  • Arrange mounds of the grated carrot, sliced cucumber, potatoes, beans, beetroot and cabbage on a large plate (or platter). Top with tomatoes on the stalk, drizzle the vinaigrette on the undressed vegies and sprinkle with the parsley.
  • Serve with good crusty bread on the side.
