This is one of those simple salads that might seem obvious, but is a classic every day of the week for me. There is so many variations of what you can do with I often use the flavour combination with some fresh tomato sliced up and toss through warm pasta for a quick meal.
All you need to put this salad together is some fresh rocket (arugula), a really good parmesan cheese, a good quality olive oil and some balsamic vinegar.
To this you could add:
- fresh slices of pear
- fresh figs
- blue cheese and walnuts instead of parmesan
Rocket & Shaved Parmesan Cheese Salad
- 3-4 handfuls of rocket
- approx 1/3 cup shaved parmesan cheese
- approx 1 tbl sp balsamic vinegar
- approx 2 tbl sp olive oil
Shave your parmesan cheese using a vegetable peeler for quick and even shavings. Wash your leaves and spin dry. Place both the cheese and leaves in a bowl and then lightly drizzle the olive oil and balsamic vinegar across the salad. Serve fresh.
Mix to order and be prepared for people to come back for seconds.
