This healthy little salad is quite tasty on its own, but really delicious with pork. Try a crumbed organic cotoletta or some slow-cooked pulled shoulder.

Ingredients

1 large whole garlic bulb

80ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra

10 high-quality anchovies (pink and fleshy ones)

150g sour cream

1 lemon, juiced

salt flakes

freshly ground black pepper

1 small celeriac, peeled, sliced on a mandolin and julienned

1 bunch kale, stalks removed and leaves shredded (chiffonade)

1 granny smith apple, sliced thinly and slices then cut in half

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180C fan-forced or 200C conventional.

2. Drizzle the garlic bulb with olive oil, wrap in foil and roast for about 35 minutes, or until fragrant and soft.

3. While the garlic roasts, bake the anchovies flat on a tray lined with baking paper for about five minutes or until brown and powdery-looking. Remove to cool and dry out.

4. Squeeze the garlic paste out of the skin (about two heaped tablespoons) and into a small bowl. Mash up with a fork and mix in the sour cream, oil and lemon juice, along with a splash of water to loosen the dressing. Season with salt and pepper.

5. In a large bowl, mix the celeriac, kale and apple together, add the dressing and toss to coat. Tip this into your serving bowl(s), crumble over the dried anchovies and serve.
