Works Well With…
Rocket adds a peppery kick to salads of all sorts. Dressings made with olive oil and balsamic vinegar or lemon juice highlight the brilliant flavour of rocket. Rocket also works well with prosciutto on a pizza, tossed through soups or pasta and it compliments eggs perfectly. It’s also pairs well with hearty grains such as faro, couscous, quinoa or wild rice and makes a delicious substitute for the classic basil in a pesto sauce.
