Summer Salad Invention Test: Rocket, grape, pistachio and leek salad

Summer Salad

I felt like getting a bit creative in the kitchen, and based on the ingredients in my pantry this is what I came up with!

1. Take a handful of grapes and cut them in half. Put them in a pan with 2tsp of balsamic vinegar and cook on a medium heat until they look syrupy (you may want to mush them with the back of a fork when they are almost done);

2. Roast half a handful of crushed pistachios (not salted) over a low heat and then put aside to cool;

3. Cut half a leek into half cm rounds, and fry in a little olive oil with a pinch of black pepper;

4. Throw rocket, leeks and pistachios on a plate and then drizzle the balsamic grapes over top.
