Preparation of Vinaigrette
Take the two types of vinegar and mix them together. Next add salt and oil. When they are perfectly blended, add two crushed walnuts to it. Taste it and if you think anything is lacking, add it. Since it is going to be used with the dressing, make sure it has a distinguished taste.
Wash the veggies gently and dry them. Musclun used here is an important ingredient and is made by mixing a number of herbs and leaves such as Corn Salad, Argula, Purslane, Trevis Chicory, Dandelion and Oak Lettuce.
Take plates and before preparing the vinaigrette, place them in the freezer. This is done to bring freshness to the dish. Take the plates out and start arranging pieces of Bresaola carefully. Make sure they are arranged beautifully and do not forget to reserve some place for Mesclun. Now take a bowl filled with the vinaigrette and toss Mesclun into it.
Now arrange Mesclun carefully on the plate. Next, come the truffles. Spread delicately sliced truffles on the Bresaola. Now sprinkle parmesan shavings on top. In the end, jazz up the flavor by drizzling walnut, olive or truffle oil on top according to your preferences. This dish serves two and it is suggested that you serve it fresh.
