…Prosciutto, Roncal, Hazelnuts, Wild Arugula, Meyer Lemon-Hazelnut Oil Dressing.
Hello salad whose name is way too long! I couldn’t decide which ingredient to leave anonymous because they were all important. But I really wanted to highlight the beautiful quality of my farmer’s market organic avocados so that’s how this salad came about. The avocados were so creamy rich and perfectly ripe. These were after all ripe-handle-with-care haas avocados. I thought they would be well treated paired with Suzanne Goin’s tart and sweet pomegranate salsa.
But I cannot dismiss the importance of the rest of the salad crew though. The creamy avocado with the tart juicy pomegranate salsa, salty meaty prosciutto, tangy sharp roncal, super nutty toasted hazelnuts, peppery wild arugula from Coleman Farms, and last but not least the meyer lemon-hazelnut oil dressing. The dressing was great and I’m in love with hazelnut oil. The can was freshly opened for this salad so it was so supa dupa fresh.
I think my favorite sorta salads have saltiness, nuttiness and crunchiness. This salad’s got a whole lot more than that, in a good way. Loved all the different textures and flavors coming together.
