½ bag rocket

1 bunch flat leaf parsley, leaves only

½ tsp coriander seeds, crushed (see tip)

4 tbsp Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 tbsp Merlot Vinegar

1 tbsp Pomegranate Molasses

120g flaked almonds, toasted in a dry pan for about 7 mins

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place the rocket and parsley leaves in a food processor and pulse until roughly broken down. Scrape out into a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the crushed coriander seed, oil, Merlot Vinegar and Pomegranate Molasses. Season to taste and pour over the mushed salad, then scatter in the almonds. Toss well, taste and add extra seasoning, if needed. If the rocket is particularly strong you may wish to add a little more sweetness.
  3. This salad is best eaten straight away when it is good and crunchy but you can eat it a few days on – it will keep for about 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge. You can even stir it into pasta along with some olive oil.
