Mozzarella & winter fruit salad

Mozzarella & winter fruit salad

starter | serves 4

1. Wash the rocket and spin dry. Slice the pith and peel from the oranges, cut them in half horizontally and break into chunks. Seed the pomegranate, and put to one side.
2. Make a dressing, to taste, with the lemon, olive oil and pinch of salt. Toss the rocket and mint in the dressing with the orange chunks and place a little pile on each of 4 plates. Tear up the mozzarella and lay on the leaves with the oranges. Sprinkle with coarsely ground black pepper. Scatter with some pomegranate seeds, drizzle with a little olive oil, shave curls of pecorino over the top and serve.
