Directions

  1. Blanche, skin and seed the tomatoes. Cut the remaining tomato flesh into a neat dice.

  3. Add one tablespoon of the pesto followed by the chopped tomato and mix together.
  4. Add the rocket just before serving, toss and plate, garnishing with the rest of the pesto.
  5. For the pesto: Put all the ingredients except the oil into a pestle and mortar and grind into a rough paste.You can use a food processor to make this quick. Thin the mixture out with the oil. Season the pesto with salt and pepper.
