Method

  1. The crostini should be made no more than 15 mins in advance. Slice the bread about ½in thick and brush on some olive oil. Heat a griddle pan and grill the bread in batches until the outsides are crisp and attractively marked by the grill, and the insides are still soft.
  2. Drape the ham over the largest platter you have – don’t lay it flat, allow it to billow slightly. Break the feta by hand into irregular chunks about the size of a walnut, then dot over the ham. Randomly place the olives on the ham and carefully place the rocket leaves across the platter. Just before your guests tuck in, carefully drizzle over a little olive oil followed by the honey. Put the crostini on a separate platter or in a bowl, and serve alongside the salad at the table.

Wonderful flavours, my husband says that he dislikes honey, so i didn't mention it's use in the recipe until after he had eaten loads and complimented me on my efforts!
This will be a lovely evening meal during the warm summer evenings, as I have spent the winter pregnant, looking forward to a small glass of something bubbly with it.
