A lad’s fresh food (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

salad

Here is my best explanation:

'food' is the definition.

(salad is a kind of food)

'a lad's fresh' is the subsidiary indication.

'fresh' indicates anagramming the letters.

'a'+'lads'='alads'

'alads' with letters rearranged gives 'salad'.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for salad that I've seen before include "rabbit food", "- Days (musical)", "Cold meal", "Counter serving cold vegetable dishes", "healthy food", "Lettuce dish", "Cold vegetable dish", "Cold dish of veg and herbs", "Mainly raw cold dish" and "Raw greens, mainly".)
