Method

 
Rub the inside of a medium-sized bowl with garlic.

Add lemon juice and mustard and mix well.

Add parmesan, a little at a time, mixing well so that it dissolves in juice.

Once mixture is smooth, add enough olive oil to form a thick, glossy dressing, about ½ cup (125ml) and season.

Blanch asparagus and then arrange on a platter, then add tomatoes.

Drape over ham and drizzle with dressing.

Serve immediately.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
