Strawberry Parma Ham and Parmesan Crostini

This light, savoury crostini recipe with a hint of sweet is the perfect summertime snack.

The balsamic and parmesan pair together beautifully with the salty parma ham, all served up on a crunchy sourdough base. Serve up as a small appetiser or with a side salad for a light lunch.

Serves: 4 as a snack or 2 as a light lunch       Prep time: 5 minutes       Cook time: 5 minutes

You’ll need:

  • 200g of quartered strawberries
  • 8 slices of sourdough bread
  • 8 slices of thinly cut parma ham
  • 100g of parmesan cheese shavings
  • 1 tbsp of aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • a small handful of basil leaves
  • black pepper to season


  1. Hull and quarter the strawberries and set aside.
  2. Toast the sourdough bread and then place on a serving platter. Arrange the parma ham on top of each slice of bread, top with some strawberries and then sprinkle with the parmesan shavings.
