2 banana shallots
175g Tenderstem broccoli
40g soft white sourdough crusts on cut up into croutons and a good splash more olive oil to fry in
1 ½ tsp Dijon mustard
4 brown salted anchovies from oil very finely chopped and mashed with a knife
2 tsp white or red wine vinegar
Pinch of caster sugar
2 ½ tbsp olive oil
Small handful broken walnuts
6 small radishes, sliced lengthways
10 fresh chives snapped in half
Bunch fresh tarragon

Peel and half and finely slice the shallots. Cook the shallots in a good splash of olive oil and sauté very gently for 8 minutes until totally softened but not coloured. Season with salt to taste.

After 5 minutes of cooking the shallots, drop the Tenderstem broccoli in boiling water and cook for 2 minutes.

While the shallots and broccoli cook fry the croutons in some olive oil until golden brown, 4 minutes or so.

Combine the sugar, mustard, anchovies and vinegar, in a cup or small bowl and then beat in the olive oil until the dressing is emulsified and creamy, toss the cooked shallots and broccoli in a serving bowl with the radishes.

Strip the tarragon from the stalks and scatter it on top of the salad followed by the walnut pieces, chives and croutons. Eat warm.
