Tips from the author
Tips: Be extra vigilant when cooking the prosciutto. It only takes a few seconds to go from just right, to a blackened disaster. I’m pretty fastidious in the kitchen, so I enjoy a bit of a challenge. But if you want to cheat, or simply save a bit of time, you can buy pre-roasted capsicum rather than cooking your own. Go sparingly with the herb dressing – it tastes absolutely divine, but you don’t want to knock out all the other delicious flavours by going too heavy. Drizzle it over the top, and add more later if you fancy. This salad serves 4 on a big plate to share.
