As a Main Course

  • 1 small red pepper, cut in quarters lengthwise, with the seeds and core removed
  • 4 plump mushrooms, washed and de stalked

For the Dressing

Mediterranean Salad Method
  1. Heat a little of the olive oil in a non stick fry pan.
  2. Add the red pepper, garlic cloves and mushrooms - cook slowly over a medium heat. 
  3. When golden brown on one side turn over, and repeat on the other side.
  4. The mushrooms will be done first so remove and put to one side.
  5. Make sure that the pepper and garlic are soft and golden then put to one side with the mushrooms.
  6. Make the dressing by whisking all of the ingredients together in the measuring jug until evenly combined. (You may want to chill this before you use it.)
  7. Take 2 dinner plates and arrange the salad ingredients evenly and neatly in the centre of each. (See picture)
  8. Top with the avocado slices.
  9. Slice the cooked mushrooms, red pepper and garlic and arrange evenly on top of the two salads.
