100g avocado
220g rocket leaves
220g spinach leaves
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1.In a bowl mix lamb fillets with lemon juice and basil. Leave to marinate for 10 minutes.
2.Toss rocket, spinach, Spanish onion and avocado together.
3.Combine garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Pour dressing over salad.
4.Cook lamb as desired (pan fry, grill or BBQ). Slice lamb into diagonal slices.
5.Place salad mixture onto serving plates and arrange lamb slices on top.

Thai and Indonesian salads are great too
