Palate Profile

When making your dressing, try using Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese which has a sharp, complex fruity/nutty taste with a strong savory flavor and a slightly gritty texture…….the taste difference is remarkable!

Additional Tips:

  • this salad easily can be served as an appetizer or, by adding a protein such as chicken or shrimp, it can be turned into a complete meal!
  • Try making the dressing table side which is how historically it was prepared in a big wooden bowl.
