Recipe: Parma Ham, Strawberry, Mozzarella and Walnut Summer Salad

A simple and fresh salad recipe for a warm summer’s day!

Parma Ham, Strawberry, Mozzarella and Walnut Summer Salad Dressed with Kiwi-Lime Vinaigrette

The mozzarella and delicate Parma Ham are complemented well by the fresh, juicy strawberries and zesty kiwi and lime dressing.


300g/10 ½ oz strawberries, hulled and quartered
125g/4 ½ oz ball Buffalo mozzarella
50g / 2oz walnut halves, hand crushed
One handful fresh basil leaves, roughly torn
Salt and cracked black pepper
4-8 slices of Parma Ham


2 kiwi fruit, skinned
Zest and juice of half a lime
1 tsp runny honey
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper


  • First make the dressing. Puree the kiwi fruit and sieve to remove the seeds. Whisk together the kiwi puree, lime zest and juice, honey, olive oil and vinegar, and season to taste.
  • Arrange the strawberries and mozzarella on four serving plates, scatter over the walnuts and basil leaves and drizzle over some of the kiwi-lime dressing.
  • Arrange 1-2 slices of Parma Ham on top of the salad and serve.
  • Cook’s Tip: Add a little more honey to the Kiwi-lime dressing if it is too sharp. The dressing can be made well in advance, but make sure that you serve the salad as soon as the fruit has been prepared.
