Parma Ham, Tête de Moine, Red Grapefruit, Arugula and Fennel Salad Recipe

Ingredients (2 servings):

  • a block Parma ham
  • Tête de Moine shaved Swiss cheese
  • 1 large red grapefruit
  • 100 g arugula
  • 1/2 fennel
  • freshly ground black pepper

Preparation method:

  1. Slice thinly the Parma ham.
  2. Slice the fennel.
  3. Using its own shaving contraption, shave some “flowers” off the Téte de Moine cheese.
  4. Wash the arugula and shake off the water.
  5. Clean the grapefruit slices of their skins, then cut them in half.
  6. Arrange the arugula leaves on the bottom of a serving plate.
  7. Then lay the sliced fennel, Parma ham slices and red grapefruit pieces.
  8. Top them all with the shaved Swiss cheese, some green fennel leaves and grind plenty of black pepper.
  9. Optionally you can drizzle Modena balsamic vinegar, but I skipped it.
