Walnuts add some crunchiness and healthy fats, with a taste that goes perfectly with the Grana Padano cheese and balsamic.
I would recommend to buy wild rocket if possible, as it tends to be the tastier and greenest. My favorite choice is the one sold at Fulham local vegetable market on the North End Road, but I am sure you can find it somewhere else as well.
For the Grana Padano cheese I would suggest to try the Waitrose own brand for its best quality for money. This salad if perfect as a starter or as an accompaniment for veal & beef.
