Spicy slightly peppery arugula is a great example of a hearty green that can be used as a salad. These leaves hold up well and won’t go soggy under the oil and vinegar dressing. A nice change from other baby leaf varieties.

Serves 4 Time 15 minutes

Ingredients:
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
1/4 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
8 c arugula, baby leaves
2 c baby bella, thinly sliced
1 c grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 c red onion, thinly sliced
1 oz parmigiano reggiano

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar, water, oil, salt and pepper until blended. Add arugula, mushrooms, tomatoes and onion; toss to mix and coat.
  2. Transfer 2 1/2 cups of salad mixture onto each of four salad plates. Using a vegetable peeler, shave paper thin slices of Parmesan over each salad. Yields 1 salad per serving.
