Ingredients:

  • 8 slices of Serrano ham, large but thin
    24 fresh figs
    1 kiwi
    4 tablespoons of olive oil
    1 tablespoon of wine vinegar
    A pinch of salt

Preparation:

Refrigerate the figs for a few hours. Take them out and peel them carefully with a sharpened knife.

Divide a ham slice into three strips lengthwise and decorate a plate with them by making flowers or curls. Add slices of kiwi as decoration. Repeat with all 6 plates. Place a fig in the centre of each flower.

Cut a cross in the top of each fig. Mix the oil, vinegar and salt; season each ham and fig with three or four drops of the dressing.
