It’s a great combination full of vitamins to boost your energy and can be adapted for a Vegetarian by substituting goat’s cheese with tofu. Once again, it’s up to you to change this around to suit whatever ingredients you have available. I’ve decorated with pomegranate seeds which are gorgeous, but sometimes can be as difficult to locate as hen’s teeth. You could substitute with finely chopped beetroot and add nuts to increase the protein content.

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado
  • Spinach and rocket leaves
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • Seeds of ½ a pomegranate
  • 150g goats cheese

For Guacamole:

  • 1 avocado
  • I dessertspoon mayonnaise or plain yogurt
  • ¼ teaspoon Tabasco sauce or chilli powder

Preparation

  1. Wash and dry the spinach and rocket before arranging them on an oval plate.
  2. Halve the cherry tomatoes. Stone and slice the avocado. Deseed the pomegranate and finally slice the goats cheese which will crumble into pieces.
  3. Arrange all the ingredients on the bed of leaves.
  4. Make guacamole by mashing the avocado with a fork. Add mayonnaise/yogurt and Tabasco sauce.

Serving

Serve the guacamole as an accompaniment to the salad.
