Get your taste-buds tingling with this delicious, vitamin C packed salad. Perfect with some grilled salmon or white meat.

Ingredients

  • 1L cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • zest from 1 orange
  • juice from the lemon you just zested
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1TBS red wine vinegar
  • 2TBS fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 bag of fresh rocket
  • salt & pepper to taste

Method

  1. Place tomatoes in a large bowl with minced shallot and orange zest.

  3. In an old jam jar combine the liquid ingredients and shake.
  4. Pour over the top of the tomatoes and dress with basil, salt and pepper.
  5. Toss and serve!
Served here with rocket but feel free to serve it alongside some steamed fish or a bed of cooled wild rice.
