Recipe: Om Nom Rocket Salad

This has become hands down my favourite salad.  It’s easy, delicious and flexible and comes together in seconds.  Add in a sweet vinaigrette and listen to your tastebuds sing!

For those who think “Ew!  Fruit in a savoury salad!”  trust me on this one.  I used to be the very same, I couldn’t fathom the idea of fruit in a savoury salad, but this one WILL change your mind!
