This salad takes mere minutes to make, and yet is so enduringly beautiful. I don’t overstate the case; there is something positively painterly about the delicate heaping of dark red leaves, red-bellied figs, and deep pink ham. I love the sharpness of Manchego, dropped in feathery shavings all amongst this, but don’t panic if the cheese eludes you (though my supermarket does stock it). Just use some Parmesan or pecorino instead.
Tear the head of radicchio into manageable pieces, and toss together with the baby salad leaves.
Whisk together the vinegar, oil, and salt in a small bowl and then dress the leaves.
Arrange the figs and ham as artistically as you can muster over the salad and then, with a potato peeler, shave the cheese over, letting it fall lightly where it will.
