Jamie says: "Make fruit the star of the show in a savoury salad perfect for light summer lunches, or as part of a barbecue spread. This dish is full of colour and texture, thanks to juicy ripe tomatoes, creamy cheese, crunchy croutons and a quick, zingy dressing." See method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Drain the chickpeas and cut the garlic ciabatta into bite-sized chunks. Scatter it all on a large baking tray and bake for 10-12 mins until slightly golden.
  2. Meanwhile, make a quick dressing by mixing the olive oil and balsamic vinegar together, then season.
  3. Roughly chop the tomatoes, and peel and segment the oranges, squeezing the juice from the membrane into the dressing. Put the tomatoes and oranges in a large serving bowl. Pick and finely chop most of the mint leaves, then add them. Add the salad leaves and gently toss together with the dressing, crispy garlic bread and chickpeas.
  4. Tear over the mozzarella, scatter over the reserved mint leaves and serve.
