How to: spice up your salad

Let's be honest, salads can be pretty boring. I know I'd pick chips any day! But in the height of summer, they not only add some colour to your plate but can be deliciously refreshing too.

So seeing we're enjoying the last of the hot weather, why not try your hands at this...


Assorted tomatoes - how many you like!
1 avocado
Fresh mozzarella
1 pack of pomegranate seeds
Chicken mini fillets
75ml olive oil
25ml white wine vinegar
1 heaped teaspoon of whole grain mustard
1 heaped teaspoon of honey


  1. Place all your rocket, avocado and tomatoes on a plate. 
  2. Cook your chicken mini fillets with some pepper in a pan until browned.
  3. Create your dressing by mixing your olive oil, white wine vinegar, whole grain mustard and honey together. You can add a touch of salt and pepper to season if you wish.
  4. Melt your mozzarella and arrange on the salad with your chicken.
  5. Add your dressing (as little or as much as you like!)
  6. Sprinkle your pomegranate seeds over the top to finish.



  1. this looks delicious! Also like a caprese salad but look even better! never thought of trying pomegranate seeds on a salad before. I'll have to try that out!
