Autumn salad with corn, parsnips, Havarti and nuts


Cut the parsnips into bite-sized sticks and coat with oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 180°C for approx. 30 min. until tender and slightly golden.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the shucked corn. Boil for 7 min. Allow the corn to cool slightly then slice off the kernels.

Finely shred the savoy cabbage. Remove the coarsest bits as they can be difficult to get through uncooked.

Combine all the ingredients for the vinaigrette.

Place some cabbage on the bottom of a salad bowl or serving dish. Then add the parsnips and sprinkle on the corn and spring onions. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad. Top with the nuts and cheese.
