Ingredients

  • 1 loaf sourdough bread
  • olive oil , for drizzling
  • 18 slices serrano ham
  • 200g best-quality feta cheese
  • 40 black Greek olives , such as Kalamata
  • handful rocket leaves
  • 1 tbsp good-quality honey

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.
