Ingredients

  • 1 ciabatta roll (about 100g)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 400g cherry vine tomatoes, halved
  • 400g Beluga lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 125g mozzarella, drained and torn into small pieces
  • ½ x 25g pack fresh basil, leaves only, torn

Dressing

  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ tsp clear honey

Method

  1. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Tear the ciabatta roll into large chunks and toss with the oil; season. Once hot, griddle the ciabatta pieces for 1-1½ minutes on each side until lightly charred around the edges. Tip into a large bowl.

  2. Add the tomatoes, lentils, mozzarella and basil to the bowl. In a separate, small bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients and whisk well. Pour the dressing over the salad and give it a good mix. Transfer to a serving plate and serve straight away.

Cook’s tip

The sweetness of balsamic vinegar works a treat with tomatoes but other vinegars such as sherry or red wine would be lovely too.
