With all the rich food winter brings, sometimes it’s nice to lighten up and enjoy a fresh and tasty salad. Our caramelised pear, prosciutto and walnut salad is simple to throw together and makes the perfect lunch or light dinner. 

We’ve used the exquisite Prosciutto di San Daniele and Grana Padano to give our salad a great authentic Italian taste. The saltiness of the prosciutto combines deliciously with the sweetness of the pears and the walnuts, rocket and Grana Pandano add a delicious tang.
