  1. Place cherry tomatoes and garlic on an oven tray and lightly spray with olive oil spray. Bake in a hot oven, 200°C for 10 minutes or until tomatoes are soft and shrivelled. Roast garlic for a further 10 minutes.
  2. In a large salad bowl combine borlotti beans, bocconcini cheese, rocket and basil.
  3. Once cooled slightly, add roast tomatoes and any juices. Combine olive oil, vinegar and mashed roasted garlic in a small bowl. Toss dressing through salad and serve immediately.
