Charred Gem & Prosciutto Salad with Feta & Fig


Firstly, heat up a griddle pan, next quarter the gem lettuce and lightly rub oil on the cut face. 

Once the griddle pan is starting to smoke place the gem and char on all sides. 

Once cooked remove from the pan and leave at room temperature.

Mix the finely sliced basil with a drizzle of rapeseed oil and some sherry vinegar to make a simple dressing.

To Serve

Simply place the warm gem lettuce on top a bowl or plate and layer up the other ingredients starting with the feta. 

Finish with the fig and prosciutto ham on top and drizzle over the dressing. Serve with warm crusty ciabatta.
