Crispy bitter sweet salad leaves are mixed with a creamy, tangy blue cheese and tender wafer thin slices of air-dried salt beef.

  • 4tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 x 40g packs sliced bresaola
  • 1 small ciabatta loaf

  1. Rinse and shake dry the salad leaves well, then put in a bowl and toss in the olive oil and some seasoning.
  2. Separate the bresaola slices and gently mix into the leaves. Set aside.
  3. Preheat the grill to a hot setting. Slice the loaf in half lengthways, then cut each piece in half again. Lightly toast the bread for 1-2 mins on the cut side.
  4. To serve,put the warm toasted bread on serving plates. Pile over the leaves and bresaola and crumble over the cheese. Season with more black pepper and serve immediately.
