Tomato, rocket and labneh salad

tomato rocket labneh salad

In a week of excessive fooding--with more gluttony to come--a fresh pick-me-up salad does wonders for the digestive system.

Toss together a handful of wild rocket, juicy chunks of vine-ripened tomato and a couple of squeaky green basil leaves. Crumble over some smooth creamy labneh, then slosh the lot with extra virgin olive oil, a squeeze of lemon, salt flakes and a generous twist of freshly cracked pepper.

Served with thick toasted sourdough or a crusty French baguette with lots and lots of health-giving butter.

    hi helen,

    according to the link, labneh has a "paste texture". honestly, that doesn't sound too appealing. but im sure it taste good. how would you describe it?

    I love being reminded by the sydney blogs what spring was like. I´m in full stew mode, and this looks so fresh and light. beautiful

    Hi Veruca Salt - I got it in a huge bucket from a Lebanese grocery shop. It's rather tasty.

    Hi tytty - It has the texture of goats cheese without the goatiness :) It has a pleasant creamy sharpness to it which goes really well with rocket.

    It must be rather low in fat as it doesn't melt. I've tried :)

    Hi lobstersquad - Yeah don't you love the innanets? We're pretty lucky in Sydney though, our winter is more like a mild autumn by Northern Hemisphere standards!
