- For the dressing:
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons red fruit vinegar or apple juice

Toast the nuts in a hot, dry frying pan. Divide the lettuce across four plates, and arrange the goat’s cheese, ham and grapes on top. Mix the ingredients for the dressing and sprinkle over the salad. Sprinkle the roast nuts on top. Lovely with a nut bread (such as walnut) or wholemeal bread.
TIPS Why not substitute the mild goat’s cheese with a mild ewe’s cheese or smoked cheese.
Substitute the ham on the bone with crispy fried bacon or low-fat smoked bacon bits or pancetta cubes.
