Baking Tray


Bake the Croutons

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Tear the ciabatta into roughly 2cm chunks.

b) Pop the ciabatta onto a baking tray in a single layer. Drizzle with oil, season with pepper and toss to coat well.

c) Bake the croutons on the middle shelf until golden, 8-10 mins, then remove from the oven and set aside to cool, 5-10 mins.

Get Prepped

a) Meanwhile, halve the avocado and remove the stone. Use a tablespoon to scoop the flesh out onto a board. Cut into 1cm chunks.

b) In a large bowl, combine the pesto, ranch dressing and olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for amount).

c) Tear the Serrano ham into small pieces.

Assemble and Serve

a) When you're ready to serve, add the baby leaf mix and croutons to the pesto-ranch dressing and toss to coat. TIP: Don't add the leaves too early or they'll go soggy. 

b) Divide the salad between 2 serving bowls, then top with the avocado and Serrano to finish.
