A good salad is a great companion to pizza. This one works so well, you could even put it on top. If omitting the anchovies, add a good pinch of salt instead.


½ cup pitted green olives, finely diced

1 small head, radicchio, finely diced

1 head baby cos lettuce, finely diced

½ punnet cherry tomatoes, quartered

½ small red onion, finely diced

2 anchovies, finely chopped (optional)

½ tsp dried oregano

¼ cup finely shredded flat-leaf parsley

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

a pinch of sugar

¼ cup freshly grated parmesan

freshly ground black pepper, to serve


Combine all the ingredients except the pepper and parmesan in a large non-reactive bowl.

Toss well and transfer to a serving bowl. Scatter with the parmesan and grind plenty of black pepper over the top to serve.

Serve alongside my 'grandma' pizza with salami and capsicum.
