Ingredients
  • 750g Butcher’s Selection Unsmoked Gammon Roasting Joint
  • 200ml cider
  • 110g bag Asda Tender Leaf Salad
  • 1 tbsp capers, drained
  • 50g frozen peas, simmered for 2 minutes and then drained
  • 3 radishes, sliced
  • 10 Chosen by you Baby Gherkins, sliced
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp reduced fat crème fraîche
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 140C/120C Fan/Gas

  • Put the gammon in a roasting dish and pour over the cider. Cover the gammon with foil and cook for 4 hours.

  • Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

  • Pull the pork apart with a fork to get long shreds. You only need to use about a quarter of the ham – store the rest in an airtight container in the fridge.

  • Toss the ham with the salad leaves, capers, peas, radishes and gherkins.

  • To make the dressing, whisk together the vinegar, oil, crème fraîche, mustard and parsley in a bowl. Pour over the salad and toss.
