Serrano ham on whole meal toast

A trip to the local deli with absolutely no idea what i’m going to buy is my life story. As I walked in this afternoon, I wondered around the room like I usually do. With a carte blanche, I’m able to envisage a dish from scratch.

Today ‘s dish was a spanish/ Italian hors d’oeuvre.

With a look at the freshly baked loaves of wholemeal bread, pepper- stuffed olives and Serrano ham, I knew I had to head over to the green grocers to get some tomatoes and rocket, so I did.

It all took about 10 minutes to prepare and it was lovely. The simple things make me really happy

To make this, you’ll need:

2 slices of whole meal bread

Serrano ham slices

1 tomato

a bunch of wild rocket

5 pitted olives

balsamic glaze

3 tbs olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

To Begin..

Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on one side of the bread slices and heat in the oven for a few minutes.

While that’s warming up, thinly slice your tomato, you’ll need one slice per slice of toast.

Remove the bread from the oven and place tomato slice on each of them.

Cut your olives and place on the tomato slice then grab a bit of the wild rocket flake over the stack.

Drizzle some balsamic glaze on the wild rocket then roughly tear the Serrano ham and drizzle a bit more glaze on top of that.

Garnish with an olive and serve with a cold lemonade in hand or a glass of rosé for that true summer feel.
