Arugula & Jamon Iberico Salad

Arugula & Jamon Iberico Salad

by Chef Doreen Colondres

Servings: 1 – Prep/Cooking Time: 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

Fresh arugula, cleaned
Fermin Iberico Ham, Shoulder or Loin
Fresh peaches, sliced
Heirloom tomatoes, sliced
Queso de cabra, queso fresco or fresh mozzarella
Marcona Almonds
Extra virgen olive oil
Balsamic reduction
Pinch of salt and pepper

PROCEDURE:

Tossed the arugula with the olive oil, tomatoes, peaches, almonds, salt & pepper. Then add the Jamón and the cheese. Serve and finish it with the balsamic and a pinch more of olive oil.

NOTES:

The art of wine pairing applies also in the food and one of the most important things is the fat content. If you want to enjoy a spectacular salad with Fermin Iberico Ham or Shoulder, you should consider that:

    • You need to add different colors, textures and flavors. To have a memorable experience you always need something fresh, acid, sweet, creamy, salty and crunchy on each bite.
    • The dressing should be light and simple. You want the ingredients to show their best.
    • The two most important flavors to balance the ham are the acid (on greens or dressing) and the sweet (on fruits or dressing).
