How to make the Mushroom Salad with Prosciutto di Parma ® :

Place 3 slices Prosciutto di Parma® on each plate. In a small mixing bowl, add the finely minced celery. Take the mushrooms and wipe them with a damp cloth to remove dirt. Slice them as thin as possible and add to the celery.

Crumble the Parmigiano Reggiano into the mushroom and celery, sprinkle with lemon juice, salt, black pepper and olive oil and mix well. Place the mushroom salad into the center of each plate and garnish with basil leaves.
