I’ve been a Riverford customer for ever, or so it seems. My account tells me I’ve ordered from them 273 times (22.75 years of weekly orders) which means I placed my first order shortly after my diagnosis of breast cancer. They’ve been an important part of my drive to stay healthy: never more so than the way they’ve managed to keep all their customers supplied with fresh vegetables during the coronavirus lockdown.

Inspired by a recent visit to Juliet’s (my favourite Tunbridge Wells café) this salad is the perfect accompaniment to grilled or barbecued meats; tonight it is going to sidle up to a grilled lamb chop from Speaight’s butcher. To me, supper doesn’t get any better than this! However, this salad would also make a delicious and nutritious lunch. Hope you like it as much as we did!
