Remove watercress leaves, lettuce leaves from their respective bunches.
Place them into a bowl with the spinach leaves and the vinegar.
Rinse all of the leaves under water then drain thoroughly and place to the side.
Finely dice the shallots and cut the tomatoes into halves.
Add the shallots and tomato’s to the drained leaves.
Red Wine Reduction:
Sauté the shallots on a medium heat with some of the butter and oil.
Once softened, add the bottle of wine and the peppercorns then reduce by at least half. Pass the mixture through a sieve then return to the pan.
