Salad of Mozzarella and Sun-dried Tomato with Serrano Ham and Chorizo

Jenny Bristow

This dish is very simple to prepare but full of strong, rich flavours and hearty enough to be served as a main course.

110g/4oz chorizo, thickly sliced

150g/5oz buffalo mozzarella, finely sliced

Good handful basil leaves, roughly chopped

225g/8oz Serrano ham, cut into strips

12 mixed black and green olives, pitted

6-8 sun-dried tomatoes in oil, finely sliced

Small handful oak-leaf lettuce

Small handful assorted lettuce

2-3 tbsps extra virgin olive oil

Pinch freshly ground black pepper

1 Arrange the chorizo and half the mozzarella on a serving platter and scatter with basil. Layer with Serrano ham and top with the olives and sun-dried tomatoes. Arrange the lettuce around the edges of the platter and drizzle olive oil over the entire salad. Season well with pepper and finally top with the remaining mozzarella.

Serve the salad with fresh crusty bread and a little extra olive oil on the side.
