Awesomely addictive salad...
...Jamie Oliver style!
A friend had bought some fresh figs, and we were trying to figure out if they should go into a fruit platter, or whether we could do something different with them. We came up with the following extremely delicious, simple and addictive salad.
Rocking Fig Salad
2 bunches of fresh rocket, washed well
6 to 10 plump fresh figs
2 to 3 ripe avocados
juice of 1 to 2 lemons
really good fruity olive oil (cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, if you can - it just lifts the flavours out of this world!!)
sea salt to taste
freshly cracked pepper
Get a nice big flat serving platter. Roughly tear your rocket into large-ish bits, and scatter all over the platter. Slice the figs into sixths or quarters (depending on their size), and scatter on top of the rocket. Slice the avocado and scatter on top of the rocket.
Whisk your lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper together until silky and thickened slightly, and pour over the salad.
Serve, and remember to have each mouthful contain rocket, fig and avocado for an inspiring taste sensation!!
