Simple Rocket Salad

This is a simple salad that can be thrown together in a minute but complements an extrodianary selection of dishes. My husband used to hate rocket until he lived in Italy, where he discovered how it should be (so be sure to use good quality rocket with a peppery flavour or the salad will be extremelly bland).The salad should be thrown together when ready to serve as the oil and seasoning will cause the leaves to wilt.
