Prep time 15 minutes
Cook time 5 minutes 

150g Rocket
150g Watercress
250g Broad beans, shelled and podded
100g Prosciutto slices 

1 tsp Dijon Mustard
1/4 tsp Honey
1 Lemon, juiced
50ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil 

In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients with seasoning and set aside. 

Bring a large frying pan to a high heat with no oil and lay the prosciutto slices in. They should sizzle and shrink immediately. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until crisp and golden. Remove and allow to cool and firm up.
