Rocket Salad with Avocado Salad and Seeds


Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time0 mins
Total Time10 mins


  • Salad Spinner


For the salad…

  • 1 small bunch rocket (arugula) (or 100 grams baby rocket
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 tbsp pepitas
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

For the vinaigrette…

  • 3 tbsps olive oil
  • 2 tbsps lemon juice
  • 1 tsp poppy seed


  • For this salad, I used a bunch of rocket as it tastes more peppery but you may use baby rocket if you prefer.
  • Wash the rocket, discard any wilted or damaged leaves, trim the ends, shake and either pat dry or spin dry in a salad spinner to remove excess water. Chop roughly and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add all the vinaigrette ingredients to a glass jar and shake until emulsified.
  • Pit and peel the avocados and cut into large dice. Transfer most of the avocado to your salad bowl and reserve approximately half a cup to use as a garnish.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad, season with salt and pepper and toss gently to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings according to your taste.
  • Arrange in a salad bowl, scatter the reserved avocado and pepitas on top and serve immediately.
