320 g Speck Alto Adige PGI, finely sliced 
A few handfuls of fresh rocket lettuce
Grana Padano cheese, flaked
Balsamic vinegar

For the rye wafers
210 ml water

Mix the water, olive oil and rye flour in a bowl and blend to a smooth batter with a hand blender. Pre-heat a non-stick frying pan, ladle in a little batter and cook on moderate to high heat until it firms up into a wafer and loosens from the pan. Turn over and continue cooking until crispy. Remove the wafer and leave to cool on a wire rack.  

Arrange the Speck Alto Adige PGI on a plate and top with the rocket lettuce and flakes of grana cheese. Dress with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and serve with the rye wafers.
