Red chicory salad with mozzarella toasts and lemon anchovy dressing HERO

Brush the baguette slices with oil then grill just on one side for 1 minute. Slice the mozzarella into 8 pieces and put on the untoasted side of the bread. Set aside.

In a small frying pan, heat the oil, then add the garlic, chilli, and anchovy. Cook on a low heat for 2 minutes, or until the anchovy melts. Turn up the heat and add the lemon juice, sugar and a grind of black pepper and let it reduce for a minute. Remove from the heat and add the lemon zest.

Grill the cheese toasts until melted. Separate the chicory leaves, and divide between 4 plates, then pour the warm dressing over the top. Scatter over the parsley and serve with the warm cheesy toasts.
