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.
