Roasted Onion, Rocket and Pecorino Salad


This is adapted from an Ainsley Harriot recipe from his brilliant ‘Low Fat Meals in Minutes’ book. This salad is just so delicious and perfect as a light starter for a dinner party as it so easy to make and looks very impressive. Use parmesan if you can’t find pecorino.

Serves 4

12 button onions halved

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

25g or 1oz of pecorino or parmesan

100g or 4oz rocket leaves

salt and pepper

Pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees.

Place the onions in a shallow roasting tin and drizzle the oil over. Season and drizzle over half the balsamic vinegar.

Roast onions for 25-30 mins, stirring halfway through until softened and browned.

Drizzle over the remaining balsamic and leave to cool.

Divide the rocket between 4 plates, add the onions and shave pecorino over. Drizzle with the pan juices and serve. Yum!
