Parma Ham, Rice and Rocket Salad

I made a beautiful pesto pizza for some friends, which I totally forgot to take a picture of, but it had parma ham on it and I was left with most of a packet left to use. Some went for a very posh breakfast of water biscuits, goat's cheese, parma ham and fruit and the last couple went on this beautiful and delicious salad. salty but not too salty with the rice this was so good.
