Rocket leaves are also known as arugula and have a peppery flavor. They have an extremely high nutritional value and will make your salad beautiful and more powerful in flavor.


  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 4 lemons, juiced
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, pink Himalayan
  • 6 ounces rocket (arugula) leaves
  • 2 ounces watercress (optional)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 4 ounces lox, sliced (optional, recipe below)
  • 1 cup fresh mozzarella cheese, chopped


  1. In a jar, add the pepper, scallions, lemon juice, oil, sugar and salt (the longer it sits the better but can also be served right away).
  2. In a salad bowl add the rest of the ingredients.
