INGREDIENTS

1 small olive ciabatta loaf, cut into 12 x 1cm thick slices
1 small garlic clove
25g rocket leaves
1 tbsp toasted flaked almonds
1 red chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
Juice of ½ lemon
375g buffalo mozzarella, roughly torn

METHOD

1. Toast the ciabatta slices lightly under a medium grill or in a griddle for 2 minutes on each side until nicely browned.
2. Meanwhile, whizz the garlic, rocket, almonds and chilli using a hand-held blender or in a mini food processor to form a coarse paste. Add the olive oil and lemon juice, then whizz again, adding enough water to make a pourable dressing. Season to taste with salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
3. Arrange the mozzarella on top of the toasts, drizzle over the rocket dressing, then serve.
