Jamie Oliver's Lemony Spring Greens


  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 500g spring greens


Finely grate the lemon zest and transfer to a jam jar. Cut the lemon in half and add the juice of one half to jam jar. Add the olive oil and season. Close and shake well. Taste and adjust the lemon or oil until you have a slightly too acidic, zingy dressing. Bring a large saucepan, half-filled with water and a pinch of salt, to the boil. Add the spring greens and cook for 3-4 minutes (tender but still bright green). Drain into a colander and steam dry for a minute. Return to pan, shake dressing and drizzle over the greens .Gently toss with tongs to help soak up the dressing. Transfer to serving dish and serve straight away
