fresh cos salad with mustard vinaigrette

Less is more’ has always been and will always be a chef’s mantra. This entails letting the ingredients shine as much as possible. Sure there are amazing recipes – such as curries – that include 20 ingredients but the underlying factor to these complex dishes is that everything is in balance without one flavour dominating another. And then we have dishes like this one which is really just some awesome crunchy pristine leaves lightly coated with a playful dressing that brings everything to life. I encourage you to play around with different dressings and vinaigrettes and become the master salad maker at home.
