Yogurt piccalilli & crisp kale salad
As with any pickle, the flavour of this dressing really improves after spending a night in the fridge and then being brought back to room temperature. Another great reason to get your prep done ahead.
SERVES 8-10 PREP 10 mins plus at least 2 hrs steeping
COOK 15 mins EASY V 200g tiny cauliflower florets 280g jar sweet pickled baby silverskin onions
3 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp finely grated root ginger 1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tbsp English mustard
4 tbsp Greek-style yogurt (not the thick-strained type)
125g (or about 5 leaves) kale or cavolo nero, any big stems removed, then shredded into 1cm strips 1 Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and have a bowl of iced water ready. Add the cauliflower to the pan, return to the boil and cook for 30 seconds. Drain, then plunge into the ice water. Once cold, drain well. 2 Keep 3 tbsp of the onion vinegar aside, then mix the cauliflower with the onions and the rest of the vinegar from the jar in a large bowl. Cover and steep in the fridge for at least 2 hrs, overnight if possible.
3 For the dressing, heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan, then add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 min, stirring. Stir in the turmeric, cook for 30 seconds, then remove from the heat. Add the mustard, 1 tbsp oil and the 3 tbsp pickling juice you reserved earlier. Cool for a few mins, then stir in the yogurt and season to taste.
4 Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4. Tip the kale onto a large baking tray. Season and rub 1 tbsp oil all over the leaves. Bake for about 6-8 mins until turning crisp at the edges. Once cooled, the kale will crisp up all over. Just before serving, drain the cauliflower and onion from the pickling juices and toss into the dressing, then fold the kale gently into it. Serve with the terrine.
