Rocket Salad with Balsamic Dressing and Shaved Parmesan
Recipe video above. A classic side salad that makes an appearance on fine dining restaurants and local bistros! It goes with virtually every Western dish, with the pepper flavour of rocket lettuce making it ideal to pair with rich meat-heavy or carb heavy mains like pastas and roasts.
- 150g / 5 oz rocket / arugula (4 big handfuls)
- 15g / 0.5oz parmesan , shaved finely using vegetable peeler
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
Shake Balsamic Dressing in jar.
Place rocket in a bowl, drizzle with Dressing then toss.
Transfer to serving bowl. Shave over parmesan. Serve immediately.
Balsamic Glaze Option: Just drizzle rocket with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss. Then drizzle with about 2 tsp balsamic glaze. Transfer to serving bowl, shave over parmesan.
This version has great little intense pops of flavour against the fresh rocket!
