A quick and simple mid-week meal for two, combining the classic taste of new potatoes, ham and peas, with earthy kale, the salty tang of grilled goat's cheese and a honey and mustard dressing. 

  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil. Add the potatoes and cook for 8 mins, or until tender. Add the peas and kale for the final minute of cooking; drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together the honey and mustard dressing, mustard powder, vinegar and shallots in a small bowl or jug.
  3. Preheat the grill to high. Put the goat’s cheese in a small, lightly oiled, roasting tin and brush with a little of the dressing. Season with black pepper. Grill for 2-3 mins, until golden and just starting to bubble.
  4. While the cheese is grilling, put the potatoes, peas, kale and ham in a serving bowl. Drizzle over half the dressing and toss to combine. Top with the grilled goat’s cheese slices and spoon over the remaining dressing. Serve immediately.
