A simple leaf salad gets a lift with the addition of edible flowers, soft herbs, and a dressing with fresh ginger, which works well with seafood.


  • 100 gm frisée, preferably pale inner leaves (from 1 large head)
  • 2 cups mixed soft herbs, such as basil, chervil, chives, flat-leaf parsley and mint
Ginger dressing
  • 15 gm ginger, cut into julienne
  • 1 tbsp aged red wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp raw sugar, or to taste
  • 60 ml extra-virgin olive oil (1/4 cup)
