Ingredients

  • 450g mixed heritage-style tomatoes (red, yellow, green and striped)
  • ½ ripe orange-fleshed melon, such as charentais or canteloupe
  • ½ cucumber, peeled, halved lengthways and thickly sliced
  • Small bunch fresh mint, shredded
  • 2 buffalo mozzarella balls, drained well, torn into small pieces
  • 12 thin slices air-dried Cumbrian ham, torn into strips (or use prosciutto or serrano ham)
  • 30g rocket

For the dressing

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Pinch caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  1.  In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the dressing with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Cut the tomatoes into wedges (or halves if small) and put in a mixing bowl. Cut the melon into 4 wedges, then scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Cut the flesh off the skin, then slice thinly. Add to the tomatoes with the cucumber, mint, 8 tsp of the dressing and a little more seasoning.
  3. Spoon the tomato mixture onto a serving platter or individual plates and tuck in the mozzarella pieces and ham strips. Scatter over the rocket, drizzle with the rest of the dressing, then serve.
