Grilled Radishes, Fennel and Asparagus Salad with a Caper Dressing

A delicious and colourful salad that can be prepared and cooked in less than 15 minutes. Radishes are packed full of vitamins, iron and potassium so this is a really healthy, but warming option, ideal as a side dish or starter for a family meal or a meal with friends.

Serves: 4 as a side

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 5 to 10 minutes


You’ll need:

2 tbsp olive oil

150g radishes cut in half

1 large bulb fennel, sliced

200g asparagus, trimmed


4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp sherry vinegar

½ red onion, finely chopped

2 tbsp baby capers

Salt and pepper

Small bunch of dill chopped


What to do:

Preheat a large griddle pan and lightly dress all the vegetables in olive oil.

While you are waiting for the griddle to warm up:

Mix together in a small bowl the olive oil and sherry vinegar, then add the onion and capers, season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Grill the vegetables on both sides in a single layer in the griddle pan, until the bar marks start to appear. This usually takes a couple of minutes. You may need to do this in a couple of batches if all the vegetables do not fit on the grill.

Once cooked, arrange on a serving dish, season with salt and pepper, drizzle over the dressing and scatter with the chopped dill. Serve at once.
