Mozzarella Treasure Hunt Salad…

Mozzarella Treasure Hunt Salad…


  • 300g selection of organic fresh crispy salad leaves – beetroot leaves, rocket and little gem
  • 250g organic buffalo mozzarella ciliegine (small cherry-sized balls)
  • 50g seedless red grapes
  • 50g orange-fleshed melon
  • Half ripe avocado
  • 25g walnuts
  • 25g pine kernels
  • 1 parge slice sourdough bread
  • 1 tbsp mostarda di frutta (an Italian condiment consisting of fruit preserved in a mustard-flavoured syrup)
  • 30ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 2tbsp freshly squeezed
  • Lemon juice
  • Half tsp honey


  1. Lightly toast the sourdough bread and cut into cubes
  2. Carefully fry the walnuts and pine kernels
  3. Then all you need to do is assemble your ingredients and scatter them through a generous helping of salad leaves.
  4. I prefer to assemble rather than toss the salad, as you can be a bit more precise and concentrate on the presentation.
  5. But in the end it’s your salad, so just enjoy it!
  6. Serve in lovely wide, white dishes with a simple dressing of the best-quality organic
