250g pea shoots
3 apricots halved with the seed removed
2 tbsp maple syrup
3 finely sliced radishes
5 sprigs fennel leaves + flowers if you have any to hand
1 tbsp olive oil
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp raspberry syrup (Click here to for a Easy to Make Raspberry Syrup recipe)
Quarter tsp salt
Half tbsp balsamic vinegar
Start heating a griddle pan over a medium / high heat. Add the maple syrup to the pan, and place the halved apricots directly on top.
Cook for 10 minutes until slightly softened in the middle, and charred on the base. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine the rest of the salad ingredients and toss using your hands. Combine all of the dressing ingredients.
Transfer your salad onto a serving platter and place the grilled apricots on top. Generously drizzle the dressing over the salad.
