  • For the dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon raspberry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon single cream
  • 1 teaspoon runny honey
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground course black pepper
  • For the salad:
  • 1 x 225g bag of baby spinach leaves, washed
  • 2 large slices of Bayonne ham, torn into small pieces
  • 12 Viva strawberries, hulled and sliced


1 Make the dressing by putting all of the ingredients into a small bowl or jug, whisk them all together, adjust the seasoning if necessary and set aside.

2 In a large wok, place half of the spinach leaves into the pan and with a tablespoon of water, sauté over a high heat until just wilted.

3 Arrange the wilted spinach on a serving plate, or two individual plates and add the uncooked spinach leaves.

4 Place the pieces of Bayonne ham in and around the spinach leaves along with the sliced Viva strawberries and drizzle over the dressing just before serving.
