Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. 

Chop the salad potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel).

Pop the chunks onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. 

When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.

Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). 

Halve the ciabatta and evenly spread over the garlic.

Cut the ciabatta into 2cm chunks.

Pop the ciabatta croutons onto a baking tray in a single layer. 

Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat well.

Meanwhile, halve the baby plum tomatoes.

Drain and tear the mozzarella into 2cm chunks.

Cut the lemon into wedges.

In a large bowl, combine the pesto, mayo, sugar and oil for the dressing (see pantry for both amounts) along with a good squeeze of lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper and mix to combine.

Once combined, toss the tomatoes through the dressing.

When everything's ready, add the roasted potatoes, baby leaves and croutons to the salad bowl and toss until evenly coated in the dressing.

Enjoy!
