The beauty of this recipe is you can use pretty much any seasonal green vegetables you want – kale, shredded cabbage, spinach, broccoli, green beans or asparagus all work well here.
I’ve used tenderstem broccoli, asparagus and a bag of Spring greens simply because it’s what I had in the fridge. I love using up odds and ends in the fridge, it makes me feel like a super efficient person (I have to try!)
The lemon and mustard dressing takes just a few minutes to mix up and the greens take no longer than 5-8 minutes, so this is real fast food!
