Preparation

Cut the rind and the crust of the Speck Alto Adige PGI and slice it thinly with a slicing machine. Mix the vinegar with the olive oil, pepper and salt to a vinaigrette. Spread some of the vinaigrette on to the dishes. Arrange the Speck Alto Adige PGI in a circle on the dish and cover it with the rocket. Add the vinaigrette and thinly sliced Grana cheese.

This is best served with fresh farmer’s bread. You can add other fresh salads, pepper cubes, egg plant in olive oil, pesto, salsa verde or different kinds of mushrooms. Red or green pepper adds a distinct taste as do different cheeses or sauces.
