I always order this in restaurants and I never realised how easy it was to recreate. Great as a starter for a dinner party or a quick, flavour packed summer lunch. Here's how to make it on the cheap!


  • Bread (crusty bread such as ciabatta, baguette etc., most are vegan)

  • 2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes 

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/2 chopped red onion

  • 1 tsp garlic granules

  • 1 tsp dried basil

  • 1 handful of spinach

  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  1. Toast your bread under the grill until lightly browned.

  2. Half the cherry tomatoes, dice the red onion and shred the spinach leaves. Add these items to a bowl with the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and seasonings.

  3. Stir all the ingredients together well and place on top of the bread. Enjoy!
