Salad of raspberries, ricotta and air-dried ham

I love recipes that alliterate: raspberries, ricotta, rosemary, rocket… ham. Oh, well. But the flavour combo here is bang on the money. Serves two as a light meal.


For the salad

2-3 handfuls rocket (about 50g)
About 150g raspberries
30-40g air-dried ham such as parma or serrano
About 65g ricotta

For the dressing

1 tsp finely chopped rosemary leaves
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
½ tsp cider vinegar
½ tsp honey
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Put the dressing ingredients in a jam jar, screw on the lid and shake well to amalgamate. Spread the rocket over a large plate (or two smaller ones) and trickle a third of the dressing over it. Scatter the raspberries over the rocket, then tear the ham into shreds and add that, too. Dot the ricotta over the salad and trickle the remaining dressing over everything, making sure the rosemary is evenly distributed. Serve straight away.
