Clean, wash and dry rocket leaves, blanch asparagus in salted water for 3-4 minutes, remove with tongs and immediately transfer to iced water. In a large bowl, mix rocket leaves, grapes, asparagus, walnut and balsamic dressing. Arrange salad in individual bowls, garnish with walnuts and parma ham chips.
