Mozzarella, Prosciutto & Fig Salad

This fig salad recipe will blow you away – it's beautifully creamy, salty and sweet

For this mozzarella and prosciutto salad, I have used fresh figs. Make sure they are ripe and sweet — a good excuse to test a couple first!

The torn bocconcini and peppery watercress with a pomegranate drizzle is delicious and makes a wonderful starter or accompaniment to grilled chicken. Best of all, with this salad, there’s no cooking involved.
