Serves 4

parma ham salad

300g/10 ½ oz strawberries, quartered
125g/4 ½ oz ball Buffalo mozzarella
50g / 2oz walnut halves, hand crushed
one handful fresh basil leaves, roughly torn
salt and cracked black pepper
4-8 slices of Parma Ham

For the dressing:

2 kiwi fruit, skinned
zest and juice of half a lime
1 tsp runny honey
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp white wine vinegar
salt and pepper


1. First make the dressing. Puree the kiwi fruit and sieve to remove the seeds. Whisk together the kiwi puree, lime zest and juice, honey, olive oil and vinegar, and season to taste
2. Arrange the strawberries and mozzarella on four serving plates, scatter over the walnuts and basil leaves and drizzle over some of the kiwi-lime dressing
3. Arrange 1-2 slices of Parma Ham on top of the salad and serve

Cook’s Tip: Add a little more honey to the kiwi-lime dressing if it is too sharp. The dressing can be made well in advance, but make sure that you serve the salad as soon as the fruit has been prepared
