Cheesy Ham Salad Quesadillas

Quesadilla wedges are great for a delicious light lunch and so simple to make. They are also very versatile and you can vary the filling depending on what you've got in the fridge. Try cooked chicken instead of ham and add some chilli or baby spinach.



  • Spray Oil
  • 2 60g Soft wholemeal tortillas
  • 1 tbsp Tomato chutney or salsa
  • 60g Grated or chopped low-fat mozzarella
  • 2 Tomatoes, diced
  • 4 Spring onions, diced
  • A few basil leaves, chopped
  • Lean sliced ham, chopped


Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and set over a medium heat. Place a tortilla in the pan and spread with the chutney or salsa. Sprinkle the mozzarella over the top and then cover with tomatoes, spring onions, basil and ham, but not right up to the edges.

Top with the remaining tortilla, pressing down lightly and cook for 1-2 minutes until the bottom tortilla is golden and just starting to brown. Carefully turn the tortilla over with a spatula so the filling does not fall out.

Cook for another 1-2 minutes or until the cheese melts and the tortilla underneath is golden brown. Slide the quesadilla out of the pan onto a board and cut into 6 wedges. Serve warm.

TIP: Some fresh hot salsa or 0% fat Greet Yoghurt makes a good accompaniment.
