Be careful in squeezing!

When squeezing more fresh lemon, be careful not to let the seeds fall in!

A good amount of flakes

Grate a good amount of Parmigiano Reggiano flakes  and making sure you’re letting the crumbs fall onto the salad too.

Glaze over the top

Make sure to add another layer of balsamic glaze over the top of your salad, in this way, your dish will be more colourful and give an even bolder flavour.
