The green beans are raw and give this salad a delightful crunch and flavour. Serves 6


300g green beans
1 bunch rocket lettuce
1 punnet cherry tomatoes
3 green shallots, finely sliced
10 kalamata olives, halved
6 basil leaves, torn
2 Tbsp wine vinegar
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Wash, top and tail the beans, and halve if very long. Wash the rocket and tomatoes. Cut half of the tomatoes in half, and combine with beans and rocket on a platter or shallow bowl.
  2. Slice the shallots and combine in a bowl with the olives and basil. Scatter over the salad vegetables.
  3. For the dressing, place the oil, garlic, salt and pepper into a screw-top jar and shake to mix.
  4. Pour the dressing over the salad.
