1/2 bag Florette Sweet Continental Salad
175g (6oz) asparagus spears
4 slices Parma ham
2 fresh figs, halved
75g (3oz) mozzarella cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
25g (1oz) butter

1 Share the Florette Sweet Continental Salad between 2 serving bowls.

2 Cook the asparagus spears in lightly salted boiling water for 4-5 minutes, until just tender. Rinse with cold water, and then drain well. Add to the salad bowls with the slices of Parma ham.

3 Preheat the grill. Arrange the figs on the grill rack, cut side up. Top with slices of mozzarella cheese, and then grill until melted. Add to the salad bowls.
