  • small handful mint, leaves finely chopped, plus extra small leaves to serve



    There are several types of mint, each with its own subtle difference in flavour and appearance.…


  1. Heat a frying pan. Without adding any oil, fry the prosciutto slices until wrinkled and crisp. Place on a sheet of kitchen roll, leave to cool, break into large shards, then set aside.

  2. Boil the peas in a pan of salted water for 2 mins until just tender. Meanwhile, mix all the vinaigrette ingredients together, season, then set aside. If making ahead, do not add the chopped mint until ready to serve, as it will discolour. When the peas are cooked, drain, then run them under cold water until completely cool. Pat dry with kitchen paper.

  3. To serve, divide the mozzarella between 2 plates, scatter the peas over and sit the prosciutto shards on top. Drizzle the dressing over and around, and scatter with the mint leaves.

Good for lunch.

I think this needs some clarifying; in the magazine this appears as a starter, so the "serves 2" doesn't mean "serves 2 main courses"! This makes a lovely light starter with a great contrast of flavours and textures.

This is wonderful. with crusty whole grain breadl As it was so light, we had Queen of puddings for desert.

i'm a veggie, so i used asparagus in this instead of prosciuttio. it's quite light though, so you might need to bulk it up a little!
