Arugula, Prosciutto di Parma & Grana Padano Salad with Hard Boiled Eggs

This post is sponsored by The Icon’s Of European Taste.

I’m feeling kind of fancy with this delectable salad made with Prosciutto di Parma a fine all natural dry-cured Italian ham and Grana Padano a full-bodied creamy, savory and nutty Italian cheese both produced Italy.  

Prosciutto di Parma can only be made in the hills around the Parma region which unique conditions make it possible to produce the highest quality hams. It’s 100% natural, containing no additives, preservatives or hormones. 

Grana Padano is a cheese originating in the Po river valley of Northern Italy. It’s produced with milk from free range cows and is aged for a minimum of 9 months. 

Both Prosciutto di Parma and Grana Padano are great additions to a charcuterie or cheese board, pasta dishes, sandwiches, salads and so much more! 

Here is how to make this delicious salad:


3 cups baby arugula.

Juice of a lemon divided.

1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil.

4 thin slices of Prosciutto di Parma.

Shaved Grana Padano Cheese.

3 tablespoons chopped pistachios.

6-8 green olives.

2 hard boiled eggs.

Salt and pepper to taste.


Add the baby arugula to a bowl and toss with half the lemon juice and the extra virgin olive oil. Add the chopped pistachios, hard boiled eggs and green olives then add the Prosciutto di Parma and shaved Grana Padano cheese on top. Season with sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste. Add more lemon juice if desired.
