Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, pomegranate and wild rocket salad with cumin mandarin dressing:
This is a very light salad full of flavour and serves 4.
100g wild rocket
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
40g pistachios, roughly chopped
Sprigs of lemon thyme, to garnish
20g Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, shaved
½ tsp toasted cumin seeds
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 large Clementine
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp runny honey
2tsp white wine vinegar
Salt and black pepper
- Lightly toast the cumin seeds in a non-stick pan and quickly mix in the Clementine juice. Then, combine the remaining ingredients for the dressing and season to taste. Leave to cool.
- Assemble the salad by placing a large handful of rocket on each of 4 serving plates. Scatter the pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds, pistachios and lemon thyme over each salad.
- Drizzle the dressing over each salad and finish with freshly shaved Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
Cook’s tip: The dressing for this salad can be prepared well in advance and benefits from a little time in the fridge, just make sure that you spend time perfecting the seasoning
