DELICIOUS

Description

I love taking the Italian classics and updating them with a modern, kosher twist. And this gorgeous beauty didn't disappoint.

It's jam packed with a trio of juicy summer melons, bresaola ( air- dried, salted beef carpaccio), avo, peaches, carrots, peppers, chia seeds, onions and a gorgeous basil pesto vinaigrette. If you are not kosher you can add some burrata or feta cheese.

This salad is guaranteed to be a regular on your dinner table. Serve alongside some artisanal toasted, warm and crusty bread drizzled with velvety olive oil.
