Good morning, this salad does look delicious. But, I am not familiar with rocket? Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Hello Eileen and many thanks for your comment. This is a lovely salad and Rocket is a very 'English' leaf, and has been used in salads since Elizabethan times. It has a strong, peppery flavour, and the leaves have a slight 'bite' to them. If you see 'rucola' or 'arugula' for sale or on a restaurant menu - it's the same thing. Hope this information helps.

All the best Jan
