strawberry rocket salad

strawberry rocket salad with prosciutto and mozzarella

What a Summer stunner. The marvellous Simon had made this for us the previous week and it was fantastic, so I had to have a go myself. It originates from this month’s Waitrose magazine.

It kinda shouldn’t work, but when you load your fork with a little of everything –  crunchy shallot, bitter rocket, salty prosciutto, sweet strawberry, soft mozzarella and tangy balsamic dressing – it explodes in the mouth for a perfect combination.

Strawberry rocket salad:

450g strawberries, hulled and sliced

10 slices of prosciutto

100g rocket

200g buffalo mozzarella, torn into bite-sized pieces

2 shallots, peeled and sliced

For the balsamic dressing:

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

black pepper

  1. Whisk the vinegar, oil and plenty of pepper together in a large bowl.
  2. Toss the strawberries, shallots and rocket leaves with the dressing.
  3. Arrange the ham and cheese on the plates, then spoon some salad over the top.
