This salad is healthy, hearty and full of summer flavours. Great as a side for a BBQ! Rocket, asparagus, diced baby potatoes, cherry tomatoes, avocados, with a light vinegar, oil and lime dressing. Whoever said a salad would leave you hungry?

Serves: 4
10 baby potatoes
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
2 ripe avocados, peeled, de-stoned and diced
12 stalks of asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces
3 large handfuls of rocket
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Juice of 1 lime


Place a large saucepan of water over a high heat and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and add the potatoes, simmering for 15-20 minutes or until tender.

While these are cooking, place a griddle pan on a high heat and drizzle a little oil into it. Add the asparagus and cook until chargrilled, about five minutes. Then remove from heat and set aside.

Add the cherry tomatoes and avocados into a large salad bowl with the rocket.

When the potatoes are cooked, drain them and allow them to cool before slicing them into quarters. Add them and the asparagus to the salad bowl.

Drizzle the olive oil, apple cider and lime across the salad with a sprinkling of salt. Toss well and serve. Have with a dollop of hummus if using.
