A Fresh Start | Rosemary Rogers Catering

The perfect Christmas Day starter from Rosemary Rogers Catering

Happy to provide “anything from a plate of sandwiches to a wedding buffet”, Dorset-based Rosemary Rogers Catering also caters for everything from office lunches to picnic hampers to corporate events. With the cold winter weather (a.k.a. Comfort Food Season) setting in and the annual day of over-indulgence looming, we asked Rosemary for a fresh dish to get your Christmas Day off to healthy start.

“This is one of my favourite starters! French Bean, Asparagus and Avocado Salad with Pomegranate and Hazelnuts.”


  • Rocket
  • Fine French beans
  • Asparagus spears
  • Avocado
  • Hazelnuts
  • Pomegranate
  • Olive oil
  • Pomegranate balsamic glaze (I use Gilly’s)For each serving:1. Place a handful of washed and dried rocket on a side plate.2. On top of the rocket, place 6-8 fine French beans that have been cooked, but maintain a crunch when you bite into them.3. Next, add 4-5 asparagus spears, again, just cooked.4. On top of this, add about a third of an avocado, sliced.

    5. To finish, add a scattering of chopped, browned hazelnuts and a sprinkle of pomegranate seeds. Dress with olive oil and pomegranate balsamic glaze.
