Enjoy the wonderful winter taste and aroma of roasted chestnuts in this light lemon and rocket salad with slices of Parma ham.


  • 1 lemon, rind only
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 200g (7oz) cooked, peeled chestnuts, halved
  • 1 small head of radicchio lettuce, quartered and shredded
  • 4 handfuls of rocket
  • 8 slices Parma ham
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Peel the rind off the lemon using a swivel-headed peeler to take thin parings.

  • Warm the oil with the parings in a frying pan over a low heat until they just sizzle gently. Cook for about 10 mins.

  • Add the halved chestnuts and warm them through for a couple of minutes.

  • Divide the radicchio, rocket and torn shreds of ham between 4 plates, then the warm chestnuts and a few pieces of lemon paring. Drizzle with the lemon oil and season well. (Not suitable for freezing).

Woman's Weekly cookery editor Sue McMahon says: If you can’t get fresh chestnuts, use 200g packs of roasted ones, such as Merchant Gourmet Hand Selected Whole Chestnuts.
