Mediterranean salads meet all these requirements. Here are 8 ideas for salads with jamón.
These types of recipes have the advantage that they can be taken everywhere: put them in a reusable tupperware and go wherever you want! The park, the beach, to work… everywhere is a good place to eat a tasty salad. Whether you’re on vacation or not, preparing a nice salad is always an ideal option.
The typical country salad is one of the best known and most popular recipes in Spain. The base of the dish is the potato combined with vegetables such as onion or tomato and with some canned fish such as tuna. In our case, we wanted to provide the differential value by adding Iberian jamón (Jamón ibérico), one of the star products of our gastronomy. The jamón, with its nutritional properties, provides the protein part of the dish, together with the boiled egg, an element that can never be missing in a country salad.
Burrata salad is a fresh and healthy recipe, ideal for summer days. Its preparation is very simple and quick. In this case, the added value of the dish lies in the quality of each product: seasonal tomatoes, Italian “burrata” Cheese is a foodstuff obtained by ripening the curd from the..., natural and fresh basil leaves, extra virgin olive oil and, of course, the small pieces of Jamón de Bellota Ibérico that add uniqueness and intensity of flavor to the recipe.
Goat cheese salad is a delicious dish that in recent years has become popular in the Spanish gastronomy. In fact, it is one of the dishes that cannot miss on the menu of any restaurant. Each chef has his/her own proposal and the combination of ingredients to prepare this salad can be infinite. It is typical to add fruits such as strawberries, grapes or red fruits -which combine perfectly with cheese. It is also common to add dried fruits such as seeds or nuts and ingredients of animal origin such as bacon, jamón, eggs, etc.
In this case, we have opted for a minimalist proposal, where goat cheese and Iberian jamón are the main ingredients. To accompany it we use pumpkin seeds and, of course, extra virgin olive oil, another Mediterranean ingredient that should always be included.
In this case, we present a proposal that you can prepare not only in this summer season, but it is ideal for the whole year. A light and fresh salad with jamón where we add timeless products such as radish, apple and spinach leaves.
A very original salad idea in a different format. Endive offers infinite possibilities, in fact, if we separate its leaves and place them in the shape of a “little boat” we can introduce a combination of ingredients on its surface and enjoy 100% eating them. In this case, in Enrique Tomás we bet on fresh and delicious ingredients: endives with Iberian jamón, pear, cheese and mixed nuts.
A representation of Mediterranean cuisine that is both tasty and healthy thanks to the nutritional properties of each food. The differential touch in flavor is provided by the Jamón ibérico-shavings , in combination with the sweetness of the pear or nuts.
Let your imagination run wild to create salad ideas! Salad with a rice base also gives very good results. In this case, we have chosen to combine wild rice with quinoa, cherry tomatoes, Iberian jamón and apple. A combination of ingredients that provide us with all the necessary nutrients and, in addition, it is delicious.
This bean-based salad is ideal in autumn, when sweet potatoes are in full season. However, we also love it in summer because it is full of color and flavor. You can include it in your weekly menus and take it with you everywhere. Eat healthy by combining excellent quality ingredients such as these: beans, sweet potato and Iberian jamón.
The lentil-based salad is also an ideal choice, legumes besides being carbohydrates also provide us with protein, so they are a very complete food. Likewise, we choose green bell pepper, red bell pepper, tomato and carrot to accompany this recipe. They are tasty Mediterranean vegetables, protagonists in countless salads and key to prepare many stir-fries. Finally, we add the star ingredient: “Gran Reserva” jamón, or as it is popularly known: “Jamón Serrano”.
