Print Simple rocket salad with prosciutto and parmesan

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.

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