Capreasy salad

I used the basis of a ‘Caprese salad’ (an Italian salad of fresh tomato, mozzarella and basil) to make this really easy and delicious salad.

Ingredients: (serves 4 as a side dish)

-1 packet of rocket

-1 handful of basil, shredded

-1 handful of cherry tomatoes, cut in half

-1 pack of mozzarella ‘cherries’ (I managed to get hold of small mozzarella balls, but If you cannot find these, then just use a large mozzarella ball and slice it)

-2 avocados, peeled, stone removed and diced

-A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil

-1 handful of parmesan shavings

-A few tbsp of pesto, see Fresh Basil Pesto, if you do not have time to make fresh pesto yourself, then you can just use pesto from a jar, or from the supermarket.

-You can also add some parma ham if you wanted to


  1. Literally put everything into one big salad bowl and mix together.
