Everyone loves it because it's so tasty!' This salad-like starter doesn't have exact measurements so you will be able to adapt it to your situation. It's just as lovely as a posh lunch for one as it is a start for the family.

  2. Place the goat's cheese on top and put the brioche back into a oven to warm the goat's cheese, then place on a plate of rocket.
  3. In a pan, slice some onions and fry in a little olive oil and brown sugar so that they caramelise then place on the top of the brioche. Add a few sunblush tomatoes.
