Method
  • 200g Sweet Solanato™ Tomatoes
  • 3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 pita pocket breads
  • 1/4 cup flaked almonds
  • 250g frozen broad beans
  • 4 radishes, trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 180g cherry bocconcini, drained, torn in half
  • 1/3 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tbs basil pesto
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp caster sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced. Using 1 tablespoon oil, brush both sides of the pita. Cut the pita into 2cm-thick strips and place on a baking tray. Scatter almonds over another baking tray. Cook, placing the pita tray above the almonds, for 5-7 minutes until bread is crisp and almonds light golden. Set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, add the broad beans to a saucepan of boiling salted water. Cook for 3 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold running water, drain well. Remove the tough outer skins from the broad beans, discard the skins and place beans into a bowl.
  3. Break the pita into pieces and add to the broad beans with tomatoes, radish, bocconcini and mint. Combine the pesto, remaining olive oil, lemon juice and sugar in a jug. Season and mix well. Spoon the dressing over the salad, toss gently. Sprinkle with almonds. Serve.
