Ham, Egg and Edamame Bean Salad

Let’s whack the oven up to a bazillion degrees and cook a roast in a heatwave …said no-one ever! When it’s too hot outside sometimes a salad is all that I want. This one is delicious and packed full of protein. Wiltshire ham, boiled egg and edamame beans are the main features. Perfect for a post workout snack too.

Serves 2


4 slices of Wiltshire ham

2 eggs – boiled

Half bag of salad leaves and rocket

4 spring onions

4 vine tomatoes

A few slices of cucumber

100g mixed edamame beans and adzuki beans ( I buy a mixed tub of these from Waitrose)

Salad Dressing

One part vinegar, three parts extra virgin olive oil, a teaspoon of dijon mustard, little squeeze of lemon and salt and pepper to season. Shake it all up and drench and toss the salad.
