Pickled blackberry and whipped feta tartines

Don’t waste the pickling liquid from the blackberries – it’s incredible in salad dressings. Try adding a splash of it to cocktails too – the fruity, slightly salty and tart flavour takes drinks like martinis to another level.

Method

  1. Combine the sugar, salt and vinegar in a bowl then stir in the blackberries. Set aside to quick pickle for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the whipped feta. Put the feta and yogurt in a food processor and whizz until smooth. Continue processing while drizzling in the olive oil until incorporated. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then add an extra swirl of oil.
  3. Toast or grill the bread until golden and crisp. Spread the whipped feta onto the toast, then spoon over the pickled blackberries and scatter over some rocket leaves. Drizzle with a little extra oil.
