Rocket-Kale Harvest Salad

Recipe Ingredients

Forgot about that head of lettuce at the bottom of your fridge? Revive most greens - iceberg lettuce, rocket, kale and even herbs - by soaking them in an ice bath for five minutes. Spin or pat dry, and they'll be good as new! Turn them into a satisfying supper with a cooked protein like rotisserie chicken or salami, roasted veggies and a sprinkle of crunchies like croutons or wasabi peas.
  • 8 cups rocket
  • 2 cups kale 
  • 1½ cups avocado
  • ¾ cup thinly sliced carrots
  • ¾ cup chopped cooked butternut
  • ½ cup sliced apple
  • ½ cup sliced sweet pepper
  • 60g salami
  • 1 cup croutons

  2. Add just enough vinaigrette to lightly coat, tossing.
