This rocket salad roll is very simple and quick to make, and it is a quirky alternative to a regular stuffed frittata roll. It is ideally made in advance and served cold in a buffet or as a light main dish.

It only needs a few ingredients and steps. You will just need to prepare the base by blending together rocket, eggs, pine nuts, oil and spices, cook it for 15 minutes, garnish with cream cheese and salmon and roll everything up! See below the step-by-step recipe and read our tips to tailor it to your taste – you can add your favorite ingredients.


You can stuff the frittata roll however you prefer: you can use ham, bresaola or other cured meats instead of salmon.

You can choose your favorite cream cheese like Philadelphia cheese, stracchino, ricotta.

You can also add cherry tomatoes, julienne zucchinis or other vegetables.

How to make Rocket Salad Roll

Place the rocket and the pine nuts in a food processor, and blend together.

Season with salt, finish off with a drizzle of oil and blend again.

Add the eggs and the parmesan in the food processor and blend again.

Move the mixture on a tray lined with parchment paper and bake at 190°C / 375°F for 15 minutes in a pre-heated oven.

Let it cool.

In the meantime, season the cream cheese with pepper and lemon zest.

Spread the seasoned cream cheese on the oven-baked rocket frittata and top the cheese with the smoked salmon.

Roll the stuffed frittata on itself and wrap in parchment paper. Let cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour, to make the roll more compact and easier to slice.

Your rocket salad roll is ready to be served!
