This avocado and prosciutto salad can be assembled so quickly if you have the ingredients in the fridge. It shows the importance of shopping and the dried ham will last quite a while if you want to stock up in advance of an operation.
One avocado, stoned and sliced
70g pack Serrano ham
Handful cherry tomatoes, halved
5cm chunk of cucumber, sliced
Handful rocket or salad leaves
Squeeze lemon juice
Heat a frying pan gently and toast the pinenuts for a few minutes until they are golden brown.
Arrange the avocado, ham, tomatoes, cucumber, and rocket on a platter. Sprinkle with the pinenuts and drizzle over some olive oil and lemon juice just before serving.
