fig and ham salad

Fancy fig, mozzarella and ham entré

This recipe is similar to the ones you see in fancy magazines and restaurants, just a bit healthier. It’s dead easy to make, arrange everything on the plates so they look pretty, for example curl the long cucumber slices around the wedge of cheese.
