Baking Tray
Garlic Press


Bring on the Garlic Croutons

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

b) Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Tear the ciabatta into roughly 2cm chunks.

c) Pop the ciabatta onto a baking tray in a single layer. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Scatter over the garlic, then toss to coat well.

d) When the oven is hot, bake the croutons on the middle shelf until golden, 8-10 mins, then remove from the oven and set aside.

Get Prepped

a) Meanwhile, pop the Serrano ham onto a separate baking tray and cook on the top shelf of your oven until crisp and golden, 5-7 mins. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

b) While everything is in the oven, trim the baby gem, separate the leaves, then tear into bite-sized pieces.

c) Halve the avocado and remove the stone. Use a tablespoon to scoop the flesh out onto a board. Cut into 2cm chunks.

d) Tear each cooked chicken slice in half lengthways. Once the Serrano has cooled, break into bite-sized pieces.

Finish and Serve

a) In a large bowl, combine the ranch dressing, olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for amount) and three quarters of the Parmigiano Reggiano. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

b) Add the baby gem lettuce, chicken, avocado and croutons to the ranch dressing, then toss to coat. 

c) Divide the dressed salad between 2 serving bowls and top with the Serrano ham crisps.

d) Sprinkle over the remaining Parmigiano Reggiano to finish.
