This is a great easy salad to throw together. I give the option to partially cook/dry out the halved cherry tomatoes, which intensifies their sweetness.

Chef’s Tips:

  • Lamb’s lettuce is a very mild-tasting leaf and is lovely in salads! They are so pretty too!
  • If you would like to add more protein for a more substantial meal, you could add cooked prawns, boiled eggs, or leftovers from your Sunday chicken roast.

Ingredients

Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
    2. Spread the tomatoes out on a small baking tray and sprinkle on a little salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes to partially dry out and caramelize a little. Remove and set aside.
    3. In the meantime, toast the pine nuts in a hot, dry pan until golden. Set aside.
    4. Arrange the lamb’s lettuce and basil leaves in two plates or salad bowls.
    5. Tear the fresh mozzarella into smaller pieces and add to the plates along with the tomatoes.
    6. Make a quick salad dressing by whisking together the olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    7. Drizzle the dressing over the salads and finish with a scattering of the toasted pine nuts.
