  • 2 large (500g) parsnips, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

  • Place parsnip and garlic in a medium saucepan and cover with plenty of water. Cover with lid and bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, about 10-15 minutes until parsnip is soft. Drain water then place in a food processor with olive oil and mustard. Blend until smooth and creamy then cover to keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, place olive oil, white wine vinegar and mustard in a small jar, shake to combine. Toss with remaining salad ingredients in a large bowl.
