4 handfuls of lettuce 'Lollo Rossa'
4 potatoes (Maris piper potatoes work best) peeled, sliced into quarters and parboiled in salted boiling water (10 minutes approx.)
12 slices of Black Pudding (slices should be ¼ inch thick)
2 sweet eating apples e.g. Pink lady (peeled, cored and quartered)
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of butter
Sea salt (we use Maldon sea salt, available in most supermarkets) and freshly ground black pepper to season
