I’m claiming this as mine, I’ve never seen this done before with amazing flavours in this salad. I’ve used four different cheeses in this, a goats cheese, a buffalo cheese, a cows cheese and a sheep’s cheese but it doesn’t mean you can’t make this without the exact ingredients, this could be a four cheese salad, a five cheese or even a one cheese.
Selection of cheeses
Thinly sliced fatty ham
A dressing of olive oil, vinegar, sugar and salt
Line a dish with rocket and sliced melon,top with cucumber
Top this with thinly sliced tomatoes, I’ve used a red and a yellow, lovely colours.
Top with cheese
More cheese and then sprinkle with chopped Basil
Whisk together oil, vinegar, sugar and salt and spoon over the salad.
Cut up the ham into small squares, using just a little olive oil fry the ham, you want the fat to render down and the ham to go crispy.
While still hot pour the bacon and the fat over the salad and serve immediately.
