  • Total time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado
    2 oranges
    ½ red onion
    Handful of rocket leaves
    2 tbsp bottlegreen Orange and Mango Cordial
    2 tbsp olive oil, plus a little extra
    Juice of ½ lemon
    1 large red chilli
    6 black olives
    2 ciabatta rolls

Method

  1. Halve, peel and de-stone the avocado and cut into slices, or cube if making bruschettas. Grate the zest from one of the oranges and reserve.
  2. Cut away the peel and pith from the oranges and cut into bite size segments. Squeeze any juice from the discarded orange pith into a small bowl. Slice the onion into thin strips.
  3. Mix together the cordial, olive oil, lemon juice, any reserved orange juice and zest and the de-seeded, sliced chilli. Toss the avocado, orange and onion into the dressing, quarter the olives and add to the rocket.
  4. Slice the ciabatta, brush with a little olive oil, griddle until marked on each side. Either pile the salad onto the individual toasts and serve as canapés or serve the salad with the griddled toasts.
