Sprinkle half the olive oil over the ciabatta chunks, season with salt and pepper and toast quickly under a preheated grill until golden brown. Keep a close watch on them, to ensure they don’t burn.

Now mix all the salad ingredients together carefully or layer them on a serving platter. Whisk the olive oil and balsamic vinegar together and pour over the salad. Serve with extra bread.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
