  1. Boil the gnocchi in a large pan of water for 3 mins. Drain well, then pat dry with kitchen paper. Heat ½ tbsp oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add half the gnocchi (it may spatter a little) and stir-fry for 4-5 mins until golden. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon, then repeat with the remaining gnocchi.
  2. Return the pan to a low heat and add the remaining oil. Add the garlic, lemon zest and chopped basil stalks and cook for 1-2 mins until fragrant but not coloured; remove from the heat. Add the lemon juice and season with pepper, then whisk with a fork to combine.
  3. Return the gnocchi to the pan, toss to coat, then tip into a large bowl. Add the olives, tomatoes, cucumber, onion and cheese. Toss gently to mix, then top with shredded basil leaves to serve.
