Instructions

Wash the pears thoroughly with the skin on and slice them thinly lengthways with a mandoline slicer, without peeling them.
Place them in a bowl and sprinkle them with the lemon juice to stop them turning black.
Season the baby spinach in a bowl with 2 spoonfuls of Zucchi cranberry-flavoured oil and the rest of the lemon juice and a dash of salt and black pepper. Mix gently, taking care not to tear the leaves, and share over 4 soup plates.

Cut the Grana Padano cheese into thin flakes with a potato peeler.
 Assemble the dish by adding the cheese flakes, the slices of ham cut in half, the pear slices and a few pecan nut kernels to the salad. Complete with a dash of pepper and serve at once.
