Strawberry & Parma Ham Salad

Reasons for Pairing

Clotted cream and strawberry is a great match so the creaminess of the mozzarella marries well with the strawberry juice.

Basil and strawberry go well l together and have been used by many Michelin star restaurants
The sweet and sour combination of the strawberry and balsamic work well together as they balance each other.

The last balance in this dish is the saltines of the Parma ham as this calms down the richness of the other flavours
