Place rocket leaves on a platter, top with caramelized vegetables and beans, then add avocado slices and top with thinly sliced steak.

You can serve salad rolled up as burritos in store-­‐ bought , warmed flour tortillas as a ‘do-­‐it-­‐yourself’ rustic dinner in the center of the table
Leftovers can be wrapped up in a wrap the night before in foil and toasted the next day for lunch.
Can serve with tinned refried beans instead of whole borlotti beans.
You can substitute any soft cheese here such as goats cheese, grated tasty or labne (Mediterranean yoghurt cheese)
