I recently visited a friend who lives out in the country side, on a golf course. Her husband is a very talented artist (you can see some of his extraordinary work here – Frank Rosenzweig) who has helped me design some pretty awesome business cards.

This salad was served for lunch and it rocked! I must have helped myself to 3 servings (and that was me holding back!). This is a sweetish salad – perfect for a meal/dessert combo.


Serves 8 -10


  • 1 pack rocket leaves
  • 1 pack lamb’s lettuce (if you can find baby spinach leaves, add them too)
  • 500g pack of vine ripened cherry tomatoes (first quarter these and half each quarter)
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1 punnet of blueberries
  • 2 ripe mangoes, diced
  • 4 figs (first quarter these and half each quarter)
  • 2 avocados, diced

Mustard vinaigrette dressing

  • 3 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)
  • 3 tsp black pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons water (optional)


  • Combine all the salad ingredients in a large serving bowl.
  • Combine the ingredients for the dressing.
  • Add the dressing to the salad bowl and toss again.
