Figs with Grana Padano and pink peppercorn dressing


  • rocket 2 handfuls
  • figs 12 ripe, halved
  • Grana Padano 30g, finely grated
  • white wine vinegar 1½ tbsp
  • olive oil 3 tbsp
  • pink peppercorns 1 tsp, crushed


Lay the rocket and figs, cut side up, on a platter. Put the remaining ingredients (except the pink peppercorns) in a blender and whizz until smooth (or use a stick blender). Add a splash of just boiled water and whizz again until emulsified.

Spoon the dressing over the figs then sprinkle with crushed peppercorns to finish.
