Top chefs talk salads

Top chefs share their salad secrets

Four of the UK's leading chefs have offered home cooks their favourite salad recipes with culinary herbs.

Speaking to the Independent, the four chefs explained what their "desert-island summer salads" would be.

Yotam Ottolenghi, the cookbook author and guardian columnist, said it was difficult to pick only one salad recipe, however, he said any salad he'd pick would include artichoke and coriander.

In addition to that, he advised chefs to include peas or broad-beans in their salads to add freshness.

Meanwhile, lauded chef Tom Pemberton said he'd opt for a warm salad, admitting: "Not very English, I know."

Mr Pemberton's salad would include chorizo, salad leaves and new potatoes, with a few grapes added.

Financial Times columnist and chef Rowley Leigh opted for a classic mix of white peach and tomato, smothered in olive oil, basil, salt and pepper.

Finally, chef Matt Cranson said he was a fan of "good old-fashioned" salads, making his with butter lettuce, peas, radishes and sour cream topped with croutons.
