Simple rocket salad with prosciutto and parmesan

Serves 4 5 min
So simple it barely needs a recipe, but it's worth knowing how to do it properly. Figs or pears are often added to this salad, giving a sweetness to offset the salty tang of prosciutto and Parmesan. The Parmesan could also be replaced with Pecorino.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 300g rocket
  • 30g Parmesan cheese, cut into slivers
  • 8 thin slices of prosciutto (or serrano ham)
  • salt and pepper

Method

Prep time: 5 min
  • Step 1

    Whisk the olive oil and lemon juice together with some salt and pepper to make a dressing.
  • Step 2

    Put the rocket leaves in a bowl and toss with the dressing.
  • Step 3

    Divide between 4 plates, sprinkle with the Parmesan slivers and drape each serving with 2 slices of prosciutto.
