Brie, Avocado, Plum and Cherry Tomato salad with Rosemary & Olive oil grilled Toast

Lunch shouldn’t always be sandwiches or Croque Monsieur, and salads can be great too.  Today I’m sharing my latest creation with you, for a lovely yummy healthy light lunch.  The sweetness of the plums fits perfectly with the brie and the avocado and the tomatoes. And the toast…I just love it!

Ingredients (per person)

  • 1/4 – 1/3 Brie
  • 1 medium size plum
  • 1/2 avocado
  • handful of cherry tomatoes
  • 2 slices of multigrain bread
  • dried rosemary, salt & pepper, parsley
  • olive oil

Method

Take the plum and cherry tomatoes and rinse and dry these.  Then cut the cherry tomatoes in half and place in a bowl.  Quarter the plum and half each quarter again.  Then cut in small pieces, before adding to the cherry tomato.

Half your avocado and peel, before cutting up in bitesize cubes.  Do the same with the brie, and both the avocado and brie to the bowl with he tomato and plum.  Mix well and season with pepper, salt and parsley.

Heat up your grill pan on a high heat.  Whilst your pan is heating, rub some olive oil over one side of the bread and sprinkle well with rosemary.  The herbs will stick a bit to the olive oil to seal in the flavour whilst grilling.  When your pan is hot, add the bread with the olive oil side down for a few minutes until the grill marks appear on the bread (or longer, as you prefer).  Sprinkle some salt and extra rosemary on the toast before grilling the other side.

When ready, cut over length in triangles and serve hot with the salad.
