I had a pretty full on day today at work – back to back meetings and then some crappy traffic to slow us down on the way home. I didn’t really have much patience for cooking so chose this quick Italian salad that’s ready in 10 minutes
- 3 slices of Prosciutto
- 1 beef tomato cut into slices
- 1-2 organic mozzarella balls
- 5-6 sprigs mint
- 10(ish) basil leaves
- Lambs lettuce or rocket
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 5tbp Extra Virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
I split the asparagus lengthways and put them under the grill for 3-4 minutes on high, turning them over half way through.
I finely chopped the mint and basil and put it into a bowl with extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and balsamic vinegar. Mix well.
Arrange your tomato, mozzarella and lettuce on a plate, drizzle over some of your dressing then add the prosciutto and the asparagus and add a final drizzle of the dressing.
