Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now let's get started!
Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6
Tear up the ciabatta[s] into bite-sized pieces, then add to a baking tray with the walnuts and a generous drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and black pepper
Put the tray into the oven for 6-8 min or until crisp – these are your croutons and toasted walnuts
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-low heat
Once hot, add the shredded ham hock and cook for 3-4 min or until warmed through
While the shredded ham hock is in the pan, halve the cherry tomatoes
Cut the apple[s] into quarters, then carefully remove the cores
Chop the apple quarters (skin on) into bite-sized pieces
Using a peeler, create shavings of the cheddar cheese
Tip: Grate any leftover cheese and sprinkle this onto the salad at the end!
Add the green tomato chutney, cider vinegar and wholegrain mustard to a small bowl
Add 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper
Give everything a good mix up – this is your chutney dressing
Assemble your salad by dividing the lamb's lettuce, halved tomatoes and chopped apples between your bowls
Sprinkle over the shredded ham hock, croutons and toasted walnuts and drizzle over the chutney dressing
Top with the cheddar shavings and any remaining grated cheese and enjoy!
