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.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
