This Australia Day you don't have to stick to the usual meat pies and sausage sizzles. A great array of gourmet salads will also satisfy your guests.
Place the eggs into a saucepan and cover with water. Cover and bring to the boil, and when it begins uncover and start timing for 10 minutes. Drain and cool under cold water, then peel.
Arrange the rocket, artichokes, olives, capsicum, tomatoes, onion and beans into shallow bowls or onto plates. Cut the eggs into quarters and arrange on top.
Whisk the oil, vinegar and mustard together with a fork. Drizzle over the salads, then sprinkle the basil over. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
To make this a more child friendly meal, replace the rocket with torn Cos lettuce leaves, omit the olives and onions. Add 200g chopped shaved ham, and add chopped cucumber and/or carrot.
