A simple arugula salad with poached egg and prosciutto—it's perfect for brunch, lunch, or dinner. It's easy and quick to whip together, but feels satisfying enough to eat as a meal. A heap of shaved Grana Padano and a drizzle of earthy truffle oil add a delightful richness to this simple salad.
Ingredients
  1. 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  2. 2 tablespoons truffle oil
  3. 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 6 slices Prosciutto di San Daniele
  6. ½ cup Grana Padano, shaved
  7. Handful of arugula
  8. Salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Whisk the sherry vinegar and the truffle oil in a small bowl to make a dressing. Set aside.

Grana Padano

Grana Padano cheese has been a part of Italy's proud gastronomic heritage for nearly 1000 years. A staple in Italian cuisine, it has become the world's best-selling PDO cheese. It has a fine grainy structure and a mellow, tasty, yet never overpowering, flavor, and can be found aged between 9 months to over 24 months. Grana Padano possesses unique nutritional features and is naturally lactose free due to its production characteristics and the long ageing process.
