Eye Spy.... something delicious

A firm favourite when it's my turn to provide a salad (especially great at a BBQ!):

ROCKET, AVOCADO & PINE NUT SALAD



Here's the recipe :
(takes 10 minutes to prepare, serves 4)

1tbs balsamic vinegar
2tbs olive oil
black pepper
8 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
50g raisins
250g rocket
250g pecorino cheese (or Parmesan cheese), shaved or thinly sliced
25g pine nuts, lightly toasted
1 large avocado, peeled, stones and cut into chunks
warm crusty bread, to serve


1. Put the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and black pepper to taste into a large serving bowl and beat together with a spoon until combined.

2. Add the tomatoes, raisins, rocket, pecorino, pine nuts and avocado and toss everything together. Serve with warmed bread.



Whoops! I'm drooling......
