Salad with grapefruit, feta & candied parma ham


I found this recipe - or well, sort of - in a lovely new cookbook by a  fellow food blogger:  What Katie Ate. It's an absolutely gorgeus book - food photography is great, and I have several bookmarked recipes for the future. This one was first though - as soon as I read it, I sent husband on a hunt for red grapefruit, and then we had this for lunch.

Salad with grapefruit, feta & candied parma ham
adapted from a recipe by What Katie Ate
serves 2

70 g parma ham
1 tbsp runny honey

150 g mixed salad leaves, cleaned
200 g cherry tomatoes, halved
2 red grapefruits, segmented
handful cashew nuts, toasted
150 g feta cheese

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp wholegrain dijon mustard
salt, pepper

Start by placing the parma ham on a baking sheet, and drizzle with the honey. Bake at 200°C for 6-7 minutes. Take the sheet out and let the ham cool. It should be crisp enough to shatter into little crunchy pieces.

Whisk together the dressing in a small bowl. In a salad bowl, add the salad leaves, cherry tomatoes, grapefruit and cashews, and toss with the dressing. Top with the feta cheese and crispy ham.

That looks delicious Anne. Now that summer is coming here in South Africa, I'm always looking for new salad ideas for al fresco lunches. Take care. Lisa
