3. Combine cheese and truffle shavings and add extra virgin olive oil. The salad should not be oily, but the truffle shavings and cheese should be fully coated.

 

4. Add black pepper and sea salt to taste. Note: Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padano are quite salty. I recommend adding fresh ground black pepper first, taste the salad, then add salt as needed.

 

5. Plate the salad and top with of the cherry tomatoes cut into halves.
