Prosciutto, Plum, Broadbean, Goat Feta and Baby Kale Salad

This pretty salad is lovely for lunch and also sits beautifully on a Christmas table. It has a lovely balance of sweetness, salty richness and fresh crunch with a nice range of textures. 

Serves: 6 as a side


1 cup frozen broadbeans
100 grams baby kale leaves (you can also use rocket)
1 large plum, stone removed and sliced (you can also use a peach or nectarine)
100 grams goat feta
60 grams prosciutto 
1 garlic clove, finely diced
juice of 1 lemon
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon coconut sugar
sea salt and ground pepper
To serve
fresh basil leaves 


Place the broadbeans in a large bowl and cover with boiling water.

Leave for 5 minutes before draining. Remove the bright green bean from the pod. Discard these skins. Set aside until ready to use.

Combine all dressing ingredients in a small jug. Whisk well and season to taste.

Scatter salad leaves on a large platter. Lay plum slices on top. Crumble feta in large chunks and scatter over the broadbeans. Drizzle with the dressing.

Lay the prosciutto slices over the top and garnish with fresh basil leaves.
