Ingredients

  • 4 thick slices of focaccia or 8 slices of bread, to serve
  • 2 tbsp basil pesto (ensure vegetarian, if needed)
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • handful of rocket
  • 2 x 125g balls of mozzarella, sliced (ensure vegetarian, if needed)
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • small handful of basil leaves
  • 1⁄2 small red onion, sliced (optional)
  • 2 tsp thick balsamic vinegar

Method

  • STEP 1

    If using focaccia, cut the slices across the middle so you have a total of eight slices. Spread 1/4 tbsp pesto over four of the focaccia or bread slices, and drizzle each of the remaining four slices with 1/2 tsp olive oil.

  • STEP 2

    Divide the rocket, mozzarella, tomatoes, basil leaves and red onion slices over the pesto-topped focaccia or bread. Drizzle 1/4 tsp balsamic vinegar over each of the remaining slices. Sandwich the slices together, wrap up for a picnic or serve straightaway. Best eaten on the day they’re made.
