My best ham salad recipe, it’s really easy, really fast and really yum.

You can throw this recipe together in literally minutes, it makes a tasty, healthy lunch that’s totally loaded with flavour. Just gather all your favourite salad ingredients and add a few tasty extras, for me it has to be smoked ham and a tangy extra mature cheddar cheese, but feel free to play around with the flavours to suit yourself.

Totally moreish ham and cheese salad


  • Bag salad leaves
  • 4 vine tomatoes - sliced
  • 1/2 cucumber - sliced
  • 250g baby beetroot - sliced into halves
  • 2 large carrots - grated
  • 340g tin sweetcorn
  • 300g smoked ham slices - snipped into strips
  • 150g mature cheddar cheese - grated
  • 2 heaped tbs mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard


  1. Get yourself four plates and share out all the salad ingredients between the plates - I like to load mine up - salad leaves, cucumber, tomatoes, carrots, baby beets, sweetcorn, ham then cheese.
  2. Mix up the mustard mayo - just add the two ingredients together and stir into each other. Drizzle over the salads.
