Prepare the almond vinaigrette: In a small bowl, begin with Dijon, minced shallots and Premium White Balsamic. Slowly whisk in Almond Oil until emulsified.
Prepare the shallots: Heat up a pan to medium low heat. Add sliced shallots, sweat them for 3-5 minutes. Season with Sicilian Sea Salt and pepper. Add 18 Year Traditional Balsamic and cook until balsamic is absorbed into shallots. Cool.
To plate: Place the shallots at the bottom of the dish. Toss the arugula in the vinaigrette and place over the shallots. Crumble or shave the ricotta salata over the salad and add almonds or almond crumble as a garnish.
