Upgrade your lunch – and ensure no more soggy sandwiches – with this tasty and authentic Italian combination of salami, soft mozzarella and fresh basil, served in a crusty ciabatta roll. We love it served alongside sweet cherry tomatoes that have been topped with a tangy balsamic and mustard dressing.

  1. Butter the ciabatta. Cover the base with 2 salami slices, then the cheese, basil and rocket. Top with the final 2 salami slices. Add the top half of the bread, halve and wrap in baking paper. Put in a lunchbox with the tomatoes.
  2. Combine the dressing ingredients in a small portable container; seal. Use to dress the tomatoes before eating.
