I love gammon! It’s probably my favourite joint of meat to cook, weirdly enough though I’m not a huge fan of bacon, but gammon is lovely… especially in a salad. Yes, it is a total of £1.14 per portion, but I’m telling you if you was going to buy this pre-made in a supermarket you’d expect to pay about double for the portion. We’re looking pretty good for the traffic light system, with the majority of salt & total fat in the medium range due to the meat, you wouldn’t find that in a supermarket!
Eggs & celery
Gammon – a few slices from a cooked gammon/ham joint
1/4 of red & green pepper
2 handfuls of lettuce
2 baby tomatoes
1/2 grated carrot
1/2 stick of celery
1/4 small onion
1 boiled egg
- Hard boil one egg (around 7 minutes)
- In the meantime, slice up the pepper & onion and fry in a pan until soft.
- Tear up your salad & grate the carrot, slice the gammon into chucks or slices however you’d prefer.
- Layer in a bowl, once the peppers & egg are ready plate up & make sure you take the shell of the egg off!

I think with salad many people believe there’s no way to jazz it up and that it’s ‘boring’ and ‘bland’ food. There’s nothing better than a tasty salad for lunch, get creative and put anything together you’ll probably surprise yourselves!
