This versatile salad is perfect on a chilly day, accompanied by best-loved comforting roasts or on a warm summer day as a refreshing, easy dish.

I used fresh rocket leaves, succulent ripe figs, parma ham and creamy buffalo mozzarella in my salad – and with drizzle of honey and some crispy croutons, I might have found my lunch staple right here…

Figs usually goes pretty well with peppery rocket and if I didn’t have buffalo mozzarella in the fridge I might as well served this salad with creamy goat cheese. You can serve this with your own variety of salad dressings or reductions, but a good old drizzle of honey, makes for sticky sweet goodness all around.
