  1. To make the dressing, mix together the vinegar, oil and mustard. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook the potatoes and egg in lightly, salted boiling water for 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Drain and run the egg under cold water until it is cool. Shell the egg and cut it into pieces.
  3. Arrange the rocket on a plate, top with the egg, potatoes and ham and drizzle with the dressing.
