Smoked Chicken & Peach Rocket Salad

You'll have this simple salad sussed in a matter of minutes

This smoked chicken and peach rocket salad recipe is very simple. Buy a smoked chicken breast and slice lengthways then arrange with fresh peaches, peas, rocket and a handful of micro greens and, voila! It's done. Add a garlicky dressing with a good quality grainy mustard drizzled over to finish. If you're keen, sprout your own micro greens and taste the difference.

Serves 4

¼ cup olive oil
2 Tbsp white vinegar
1 tsp grainy mustard
1 tsp brown sugar
1 garlic clove, crushed

1 cup fresh peas, cooked
4 cups rocket
2 peaches, cut into wedges
1 smoked chicken breast, sliced
1 cup micro greens
Salt and freshly ground pepper

1. Firstly make the dressing. In a jar combine the oil, vinegar, mustard, sugar and garlic.

2. In a large bowl place the peas, rocket, peaches, chicken breast and half the micro greens. Just before serving toss through the dressing. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Serve topped with a garnish of micro greens.
