  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the potatoes and celery and cook for 8 mins. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt, guerkins, caraway and mustard in a bowl. When the potatoes and celery are cooked, drain and set aside for a few mins to cool a little.

  2. Bash the pork pieces with a rolling pin to flatten them. Sprinkle over the sage and some pepper, then top each with a slice of Parma ham. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, add the pork and cook for a couple of mins each side, turning carefully. Add the balsamic vinegar and let it sizzle in the pan.

  3. Stir the potatoes and celery into the dressing and serve with the pork, with some salad leaves on the side.

There's no cucumber in the ingredient list, but recipe says to add cucumber to the yogurt? How much cucumber, diced or sliced?

Thank you for pointing this out. Apologies, the method should have read guerkins not cucumber and we have now amended this.

Really yummy! My local supermarket didn't sell caraway seeds so I substituted for 1/4tsp cumin, and they didn't have Parma ham so I used prochuto. Tasted fabulous! Perfect for summer bbqs or dinner on a warm day
