I love the very idea of this salad – the pop of blueberries, the sweet tarragon, the rich crunch of walnut.

It’s something to chuck together on a long, hot day.

No mess, no fuss, just great.


Serves two:

For the vinaigrette:

2 tsps groundnut oil

2 tsps cider vinegar

zest of half a lemon

1 tbsp fresh tarragon

salt and pepper

For the salad:

200g young spinach leaves

50g walnut halves

Slightly broken 100g blueberries


1 Prepare the vinaigrette.

2 Then combine the spinach, walnuts and blueberries and dress.

3 For extra bulk and texture, add 100g cooked and seasoned puy lentils and a tangle of sautéed red onion, thinly sliced (add 159 calories).
