45ml red wine vinegar
45ml of sherry vinegar
6g salt
15g mustard
15g chopped shallots
4g chopped tarragon
20cl sunflower oil
10cl olive oil


Heat the oven and roast the pine nuts for 10 minutes at 150C, turning twice for an even colour.

Wash the lettuce and salad leaves separately. Cut the radishes, carrots, zucchinis, and fennel into approximately 2mm thick shavings using a mandolin. Plunge them in iced water.

Make the herb salad by combining the herb leaves and sprigs (keep the stems to create a delicious herb oil). Mix the vinegars with the salt until dissolved, add the mustard, then the oils, the shallots and the tarragon. Drain the vegetables.

In a bowl mix all the vegetable shavings, the herb salad and the roasted pine nuts. Season with the vinaigrette to your liking.
