  1. Drizzle the lemon juice over the apple slices to stop them from browning. Set aside.
  2. Arrange the chicory leaves on a serving plate in a circular pattern for the base of the ‘wreath’. Scatter the rocket and spinach leaves over the top of the chicory.
  3. Cut 2 of the figs into wedges and scatter over the leaves. Halve the remaining figs and slice. Place the slices side-by-side to create a border around the inside circle of the wreath.
  4. Scatter the apple, beetroot and feta evenly over the leaves.
  5. For the dressing, mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl. Season to taste. Serve in the centre of the wreath or alongside, ready for drizzling.
