Fig and parma ham salad – an easy way to impress

Now, I really can hardly call this a recipe. It took all of 5 minutes to make, but it tasted pretty lovely. This fig and parma ham salad is really quick and easy to make and looks simply beautiful. It would be great as a light lunch served with some crusty bread or as a starter for an evening meal; particularly if you want to impress somebody or a pushed for time.

To make this salad you will need (per person):

A large handful of salad leaves – watercress, lambs lettuce or rocket are all great

2 figs

A slice of parma ham (or 2 if you’re feeling generous)

A splash of olive oil

A splash of balsamic vinegar

(optional garnish) Parmesan shavings


Arrange your salad leaves onto a plate. Quarter the figs and arrange on the plate. Tear up the ham and arrange on top of the figs and leaves. Add a splash of oil and balsamic vinegar and serve.

If you haven’t noticed I love veggies and salad because they’re so colourful!

 A very quick and straightforward way to impress your friends. I hope you like it!
