Parma Ham and Grilled Broccoli Salad with a Honey, Mustard and Lemon Dressing Recipe

I’m loving the vegetables and salad ingredients at the moment. Purple sprouting broccoli is one of my favourite as you will see from my posts. I thought I would try some in a salad and it worked so well with the salty parma ham and cheese. Grilling them added a deepness of flavour and more texture. This is a tasty seasonal salad.

Ingredients (serves 2)

For the salad

  • 6-8 stalks of purple sprouting broccoli
  • small bag of rocket leaves
  • 6 slices of parma ham or prosciutto
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • manchengo or parmesan shavings, to serve

For the dressing

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp runny honey
  • 1/2 tbsp grain mustard
  • zest of a lemon

Directions

  1. Place the broccoli in a bowl drizzle with olive oil and season with a crack of pepper and salt. Mix with your hands to coat all over.
  2. Heat the grill to high and grill the stalks 2-3 minutes on each side.
  3. Assemble the salad by sharing the rocket between 2 servings bowls, sprinkle over the tomatoes, tuck in the parma ham, add the broccoli and shave over the cheese. Finish off by drizzling over the dressing. Enjoy.
