Pams Fresh Mesclun is just the beginning when it comes to creating a delicious meal - it can hold together so many flavours and textures. Here’s an idea that will make you the star of the party next time someone says, “just bring a salad”. 

You'll need:

  • 200g Pams lamb backstrap, at room temperature 
  • ½ teaspoon Pams ground cumin 
  • 200g haloumi 
  • 2 bunches Pams asparagus, woody ends removed 
  • 1 x 500g bag Pams Fresh Mesclun  
  • 1 mango, peeled and sliced 
  • 1 cup shelled edamame beans 
  • 1 punnet Pams cherry tomatoes, halved 
  • ½ Pams Organic red onion, sliced 
  • ¼ cup Pams pine nuts, toasted  
  • ¼ cup Pams pesto  


  1. Rub the lamb fillet with olive oil and cumin, and season with salt and pepper.  
  2. Heat a heavy based frying pan over high heat. Cook the lamb for 4-5 minutes each side for beautiful rare slices (feel free to cook for longer at about 7-8 minutes each side if you prefer your lamb well cooked).  
  3. Transfer to a plate and cover with tinfoil. Rest while you prepare the rest of your salad.  
  4. Give the pan a quick wipe with a paper towel, drizzle with a little oil then throw in your haloumi. Grill until golden in colour.  
  5. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil, place asparagus and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove and place in a bowl of iced water to keep them a little crunchy.  
  6. Now you can start assembling your masterpiece. Slice the lamb thinly. Place Pams Mesclun in a large bowl. Add all the other ingredients (except the pesto) and toss to combine. Arrange on a serving platter, then drizzle with pesto.  
  7. Serve with a drizzle of Pams balsamic vinaigrette.
