Tips from the author

Variation:

  • Substitute the spring onions for fresh basil leaves.
  • Add approximately 100g of croutons for an authentic Tuscan 'bread salad' (panzanella). 
  • Add 2 - 3 tablespoons of (lightly roasted) pine nuts.
  • Replace the rucola with tender lettuce or lamb's lettuce.
