60-70g sugar snaps, halved lengthways
60-70g mangetout, shredded

1tbsp Chardonnay or a good-quality white-wine vinegar
2tbsp vegetable or corn oil
2tbsp rapeseed or olive oil
1tsp Dijon or Tewkesbury mustard
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
A few sprigs of mint, chopped

Method

Mix all the ingredients for the dressing together, leave to infuse for an hour and strain through a fine-meshed sieve.

To serve, toss all the ingredients together and garnish with extra torn mint leaves.
