Put the pro­sciutto, al­monds, fennel and onion seeds in a roast­ing tray and sea­son. Driz­zle with olive oil, toss, then spread the pro­sciutto out flat. Roast for 15 min­utes, or un­til the pro­sciutto is golden and crisp.

Halve any larger stems of broc­coli and cook on the grid­dle un­til charred all over. Finely slice the beans and kale or chard stalks and chop the leaves. Roughly chop or crush the al­monds with a pes­tle and mor­tar. Mix most of the chervil and tar­ragon into the dress­ing. Toss the greens and most of the al­monds in the dress­ing, then scat­ter over a plat­ter.
