Say – want a nice, light salad to go with that chowdah? I got just the thing! I happen to love arugula. It is my favorite green – all peppery & spicy. I also like a nice Parmesan and who doesn’t like lemon? This salad couldn’t be easier. Not even any chopping required. For ingredients plus S&P. Simplicity defined.
Arugula Salad with Shaved Parmesan & Lemon
A wedge or block of high quality Parmesan or some store-bought shaved Parmesan (not grated)
In a salad dressing bottle – combine olive oil & lemon juice. I like a ratio of about 2 parts oil to one part lemon. You might like more – or even less – lemon. Add salt & pepper to taste. Put arugula on plates. Drizzle with the dressing. Use a veggie peeler to shave fresh Parmesan – and a good quantity of it – over the greens. Serve with more fresh ground pepper. With lots of wine. LOTS. You earned it.
