Arugula Salad with Olive Oil, Lemon and Parmesan
This salad is super easy to make Ė got the idea here, but itís so easy you really donít need a recipe. If you like peppery, salty, and tangy, youíll like this. Arugula is slightly bitter, too. I pan seared a rib-eye steak (thank you, Alton Brown), and served it with this salad and a glass of red wine. Heavenly!


Take a handful of baby arugula leaves for each serving (I used Ĺ bag from Trader Joes for 3 servings) and place in salad bowl. Drizzle arugula with some extra virgin olive oil (enough to coat leaves but not drown them) and toss to coat. Squeeze Ĺ lemon over salad and toss again. Add shaved Parmesan cheese (bigger chunks than shredded), salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. Toss and serve immediately.

We have a salad like this almost every night. The greens vary. I add minced garlic and kalamata olives. A friend from Vermont sent me a wedge of a specialty cheese called Parmesan cheddar and I have been using that to shave on top. It's very good. I think olive oil and lemon juice is my favorite dressing.

Oh yum - the garlic and olives sound wonderful. I'll have to try that with my other 1/2 bag of TJs arugula. Thanks for the idea!

You're welcome. We do the pan seared steak thing, too. :shake:A perfect meal. Don't forget the wine!

I grew up eating Arugula so you know I eat this salad almost daily :)
