Estilo Affinato di Modena & Meyer Lemon EVOO with Spring Vegetable Salad
Updated: Apr 18, 2022
2 Tbs. Sea Salt
10 oz. multi-colored baby potatoes
2 cups snap peas
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
1 1/2 cups yellow wax beans
1 1/2 cups green beans or haricot vert
Affinato and Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette:
1/2 cup Estilo Affinato di Modena
1/4 cup Ella's Meyer Lemon EVOO
2 Tbs. Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
4oz prosciutto, thinly sliced
Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way with water, add sea salt, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, add potatoes and cook for 20-25 minutes or until fork-tender. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Transfer the potatoes to the ice water using a slotted spoon and cool. Return the saltwater to medium-high heat and, once boiling, add the snap peas, asparagus, wax beans, and green beans. Boil for 3-5 minutes or until the veggies are tender-crisp. Transfer the veggies to the ice water bath using a slotted spoon and set them aside to cool (adding more ice if necessary).
Meanwhile, place balsamic vinegar, Ella's Meyer Lemon EVOO and Dijon mustard in a medium bowl whisk until blended. Season the vinaigrette taste with salt and pepper.
Once the veggies have cooled, thoroughly drain, patting them dry with paper towels, and transfer to a large salad bowl or platter. Drizzle the salad with vinaigrette and top with chopped walnuts and prosciutto before serving. Enjoy!
