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

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
