Chilli, lime juice, garlic and ginger give this filled baguette a real kick – great to keep you going after lunch! This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our Scandinavian-style smoked gammon with parsley sauce dish.

  1. In a bowl stir together the rice vinegar, sugar, lime juice, ginger, garlic and chilli. Toss with the spring onion, carrot and cucumber.
  2. Slice the baguette in half lengthways and fill with the little gem leaves and gammon. Spoon over the carrot mixture and scatter over the coriander leaves if using. Cut into 2 to serve.

Please note that 125g (4oz) of gammon is not included in the shop ingredients list as this is a leftover, so you will need to enter the product in your shopping basket if making this recipe from scratch.
