Pan-fried gnocchi with mesclun salad

2 portions | Preparation : 20 minutes | Cooking : 15 minutes

Ingredrients :

  • 500 ml (2 cups) gnocchi
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) salt
  • 45 ml (3 tbsps) olive oil
  • Finely chopped thyme
  • Finely chopped rosemary
  • 2 minced dried tomatoes
  • 2 sliced medium tomatoes
  • 4 figs cut into wedges
  • 4 thin slices of Parma ham
  • 500 ml (2 cups) mesclum
  • 20 pitted black olives

For seasoning :

  • 2 sliced medium tomatoes
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp.) Balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

Prepare your salad dressing :

First of all, let's prepare gnocchi as they must be added warm in the salad. Therefore, we will have to let them rest for about 10 minutes.

Gnocchi preparation :

  1. In a large pan of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Drain, and flush immediately with lukewarm water. Lay down and tap with a clean and dry cloth. Reserve in a bowl with a little olive oil.
  3. Heat a frying pan over low fire (if too hot, gnocchi will quickly burn and turn to black). Brown gnocchi for 5 minutes. Add a bit of thyme and rosemary, and stir from time to time until gnocchi are well browned. The goal is to get them a little grilled outside, but still soft and fluffy inside. Add salt and pepper, then let rest in a plate while preparing the rest of the salad.
  4. Add salt and pepper, then let rest in a plate while preparing the rest of the salad.
  5. Cut ham in coarse pieces.
  6. In each plate, place young shoots/mesclun.
  7. Add sliced tomatoes, dried tomatoes, olives and Parma ham.
  8. Finish by placing here and there fig quarters and gnocchi.

Prepare your salad dressing :

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients.
