“This salad is excellent with a piece of simply grilled fish and is also good with chicken,” says George Calombaris. “I really love using caper leaves if I can get them, but, if not, I use chopped capers.”

2.Combine capers, olive oil, shallot, rind and juice in a small bowl, season to taste and set aside.
3.Combine cos lettuce, radish and lentils in a bowl with caper dressing, season to taste and toss to combine, then serve.
