    Cook's tips

    Adding mozzarella after the salad is tossed avoids the beetroot in the Nantaise Salad staining it pink.

    You can make the salad up to 2 hours in advance by pouring the dressing into the bottom of the salad bowl. Top with the leaves and grapes but do not toss together. Keep in the fridge, then toss when required. Add the mozzarella just before serving.

    Mozzarella is also delicious served with a simple tomato salad topped with fresh basil and drizzled with a little olive oil.
