    Cook’s tip
    Make a meat-free version of this salad by swapping the parma ham for Cooks’ Ingredients Chargrilled Tomatoes or Chargrilled Artichokes.

    And to drink...
    Enjoy this colourful, Italian-style salad with a crisp and refreshing fruit-driven white wine such as Solini Pinot Grigio, Italy.
