Arugula Salad with Prosciutto and Oyster Mushrooms (Recipe courtesy Fabio Trabocchi)


  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound oyster mushrooms, thickly sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • ¼ cup aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 4 inner celery ribs, cut into 2-by-1/4-inch matchsticks, plus ¼ cup celery leaves, for garnish
  • 10 cups baby arugula (10 ounces)
  • 6 ounces Pecorino Toscano, shaved with a vegetable peeler (1 ½ cups)
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto di Parma


In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer the mushrooms to a bowl and let cool.

In a large bowl, whisk the vinegar with the lemon zest and the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the celery matchsticks, arugula and mushrooms and gently toss. Transfer the salad to a large platter or bowl, top with the Pecorino Toscano, prosciutto and celery leaves and serve right away. Serving yield = 10 servings.
