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

Fresh arugula

A wedge or block of high quality Parmesan or some store-bought shaved Parmesan (not grated)

Lemon

Olive oil

S&P

DIRECTIONS

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.
