Grape, avocado, walnut and feta salad
SERVES 6 PREP TIME 10 MINUTES A great combination of some of my favourite foods. This pretty salad looks great on a platter as part of a buffet or when taking a side or salad dish to a party.
100g packet (about 3 handfuls) fresh baby rocket handful of Italian flat-leaf parsley 2 cups seedless grapes, halved 2 firm but ripe avocados, peeled, stoned and chopped 1 cup cubed feta cheese 1 cup toasted fresh walnut halves (see overleaf) 3 spring onions, finely sliced
⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar 1 tablespoon liquid honey or agave syrup sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 Rinse the rocket and parsley and spin in a salad spinner to get all the excess water off the leaves. Place the greens in a salad bowl. Add the grapes, avocado, feta, walnuts and spring onions. 2 DRESSING Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and, just before serving, drizzle over the salad and toss to mix. The secret to a great green salad is crispness, with the dressing added just before serving.
