Grilled Asparagus Salad with Serrano and Parmesan


To make the most of Serrano Ham, enjoy them sliced as finely as possible, and always at room temperature for best texture and taste.

  • 2 bunches asparagus, trimmed
  • canola oil spray
  • sea salt flakes and freshly-milled black pepper
  • ½ bunch basil leaves
  • ½ bunch parsley leaves
  • ½ bunch mint leaves
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp capers
  • 1 Tbsp finely-grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 slices Serrano Ham
  • 1 head witlof, sliced
  • 50g Parmesan cheese, shaved

1 Sprinkle the asparagus with canola oil spray and season with salt and pepper. Cook on a hot grill for 2 minutes, until just blackened.

2 Combine the herbs, garlic, capers and finely-grated Parmesan in a small blender with the olive oil and puree until a coarse paste forms. Season with salt and pepper.

3 Arrange the asparagus on plates and top with the ham, witlof and shaved Parmesan.
