    • 1 lemon, rind only
    • 2tbsp olive oil
    • 200g (7oz) cooked, peeled chestnuts, halved
    • 1 small head of radicchio lettuce, quartered and shredded
    • 4 handfuls of rocket
    • 8 slices Parma ham
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


    • Peel the rind off the lemon using a swivel-headed peeler to take thin parings.

    • Add the halved chestnuts and warm them through for a couple of minutes.

    • Divide the radicchio, rocket and torn shreds of ham between 4 plates, then the warm chestnuts and a few pieces of lemon paring. Drizzle with the lemon oil and season well. (Not suitable for freezing).
