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.
