Lettuce Wraps with Parma Ham and Avocado

Recovering from the dreaded cold which seemed to have been doing the rounds, I really wanted something light and tasty for lunch one day as nothing seemed to taste right.

I had a few slices of Parma ham in the fridge, along with some baby plum tomatoes and a large round lettuce so decided ‘wraps’ would be on the menu for lunch.  The dressing I knew would be lovely and tangy and would compliment the ham perfectly as I had tried it at Christmas on a rather delicious salad my daughter-in-law made, although for the wraps I made it with less olive oil.  It still trickled down our fingers but no-one minded as it was so tasty.

INGREDIENTS: to serve two

6 large lettuce leaves
3 slices Parma ham, cut in half to make 6
1 avocado, sliced
A few baby plum tomatoes, sliced
Handful of toasted pine nuts

1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
½ tablespoon wholegrain mustard
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


Lettuce wraps with Parma Ham


Whisk the dressing ingredients together and put to one side.

Lay a lettuce leaf flat and top with a piece of Parma ham, slices of avocado, tomato and a few pine nuts.










Drizzle over the dressing, roll up and enjoy.

The dressing is sufficient for far more than six wraps but keeps well in the fridge for a few days.
