  • 500 g strawberries
  • 200 g baby bocconcini
  • 50 g rocket leaves
  • 1 bunch radish
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt, to taste



  • Wash and trim strawberries, then cut in half or quarters depending on size.
  • Wash radishes, trim green tops and thinly slice.
  • Wash and dry rocket leaves.
  • Add walnuts, maple syrup and a pinch of salt in a flat pan and roast over medium-high heat. Stir frequently until syrup is caramelised and walnuts have gained a golden colour. Approximately will take about 2-3 minutes.


  • On a large plate, scatter ¾ of rocket leaves, then place strawberries and sliced radishes on top.
  • Drain bocconcini from brine and scatter between strawberries and radish slices.
  • Add the remaining rocket leaves and maple glazed walnuts.
  • To serve, drizzle olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar across the salad.


  • If you can’t find baby bocconcini, a large buffalo mozzarella ball would suffice too. Just tear up the cheese and scatter on the plate.
  • Remove walnuts if prefer nut-free salad. It works without.
  • Whether you are hosting or taking this salad to a party, you can easily have all ingredients cut and prepared, then assemble when you need to serve.
