  1. Cut bread into thick slices and drizzle both sides with olive oil. Place bread on barbecue preheated to medium and grill until toasted and slightly charred, about 2 min. per side. Transfer to platter.

  2. Place ham steaks on grill and cook until juicy and grill-marked, about 4 min. per side. Meanwhile place cheese slices on plate and drizzle both sides with olive oil. Place cheese on barbecue and grill about 2 min. on first side – or until a crust develops on bottom – flip and grill about another 2 min. Transfer ham and cheese to platter. Add tomato slices.

  3. In a large bowl, toss field greens and English salad cream dressing to coat. Serve greens alongside platter, plus chutney and pickles, if using.
