  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 large handful of arugula/rocket
  • 2.8 oz (80g) green pitted olives
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Slice the tomatoes and red onion into fine slices (slice the red onion as thin as possible). Add the arugula to a bowl, drizzle with a little olive oil (around a tsp) and add the squeeze of lemon along with a small pinch of salt and pepper. Toss so the arugula is coated in the dressing and arrange on a serving plate.
  • Top with slices of tomato, red onion, and olives. Drizzle over 1 tbsp of red wine vinegar and sprinkle with a pinch of salt of pepper (make sure the tomatoes are seasoned well). Finally drizzle over the remaining olive oil and serve.
