These tasty tapas snacks are ready in just 5 minutes, the perfect accompaniment for a drinks, tapas or summer cocktail party. Jamón serrano is a Spanish ham & similar to prosciutto - which you could use instead. Try to use sun ripened (not cold frame) tomatoes - they really make a huge difference to this recipe! This recipe serves 10 to 12 people, with other accompaniments on offer.

Gracias for treating me to such a natural and simple dish for my lunch today. I used vine tomatoes , Spanish olive oil and Serrano ham to really make me feel like I was having my lunch in Spain instead of slightly chilly London. It tasted as fresh as it looked. The only thing I might change next time is just to slice my baguette a bit thinner so I can get it more easily into my mouth without spilling any of those tasty tomatoes down my top. Made for the Chow Hound team for ZWT5.
