Cooked vegetables: wash, remove stalks and peel the vegetables. Cook for a few minutes in a large quantity of boiling salted water. Keep the vegetables crunchy. Cool with cold water and set to one side.

Raw vegetables: thinly slice the carrots, radish and fennel. Leave the peas whole. Cut the broccoli into small florets and cut the cherry tomatoes into slices.

Tomato juice: peel, seed and cut the tomatoes into quarters. Blend with olive oil and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper.

Fine herbs: keep the herbs whole but get rid of any oversize stalks.

In a bowl, carefully mix all the raw and cooked vegetables with the tomato juice. Spoon onto a plate and sprinkle on the sea salt and piment d’Espelette. Decorate with a small bunch of fresh fine herbs.

Variation. replace the tomatoes with carrot juice. The taste will be completely different but just as interesting!
