Ingredients

  • 1 bunch microgreens, mixed garden selection
  • 1 bunch baby leaves, mixed garden selection
  • 4 Tbls chevre, crumbled
  • 1 x golden zucchini, finely sliced
  • 6 x fresh asparagus
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint, finely shredded
  • 1 x green onions, finely sliced
  • 2 sprigs basil, finely shredded
  • 1 x preserved artichoke heart, quartered
  • 1/3 cup spelt sourdough croutons
  • 1 Tbls balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbls extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Method

The baby leaves and microgreens including radish, red mustard, curly cress, nasturtium, beetroot, mizuma, japanese spinach, english spinach, dandelion, soral and basil are arranged on the plate with the heart shaped microgreen leaves plainly evident.
The zucchini and asparagus are stacked and topped with the chevre.
Add 2 quarters of preserved artichoke heart for each plate
The dressing of balsamic, oil and shredded herbs is shaken to combine and drizzled over the salad with a pinch of dressed herbs placed on the chevre and the salad seasoned to taste

serves 2 lovers with dessert to follow

The celebration of Lupercalia in the ancient calendar has overtones of fertility hence my inclusion of baby leaves and sprouted microgreens .. the heart shape of the primary leaves was a bonus and very fitting in the modern modis
