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!

Om Nom Rocket Salad

Time: 5 minutes

Difficulty: Super Easy

Calories: 175 per 1.5 cup serving (85 without the avocado)

You will need:

  • 3 cups mixed organic rocket, cress and baby spinach leaves
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored, seeded and finely sliced
  • 1 medium sized avocado cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup radishes, sliced
  • handful of crushed walnuts
  • Parmesan flakes to garnish

My vinaigrette recipe:

  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 Tsp sale
  • 1/2 Tsp pepper
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 C balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 C fine olive oil (the better the oil you use, the better the dressing)

Mix all ingredients together and allow to rest for 30 minutes before using.


  1. Assemble the salad and pour over the dressing.  EASY!

    1. I think celery would work beautifully. It wouldn’t have the peppery bite without radish or the creaminess without the avocado, so you might have to tone down the dressing a bit or use a sweet apple to counter the vinegar, but it sounds like it could be a nice variation to try. Please do let me know how it works out for you.
