simple arugula salad

March 17, 2013 § 3 Comments


Serve this salad next time you make a steak. It’s perfect.  I buy baby arugula in the little clear box, already cleaned and ready to eat.  You can either use a sweet yellow or red onion. And always use freshly grated parmesan cheese!

What you will need for this dish:

  •  2 big handfuls of arugula
  • two tablespoons pine nuts
  • 1/4 red or sweet yellow onion, sliced very thin
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • good sprinkling freshly grated or shaved parmesan cheese
  • pinch salt

Using a non stick skillet on medium high heat, toast the pine nuts.   Give the skillet an occasional  shake to brown all sides.  Remove from heat and let cool.

Place the arugula in a large salad serving bowl.  Spread the onion on top.  Next sprinkle the pine nuts and a generous amount of grated or shaved parmesan.  When you are ready to sit down, drizzle the olive oil on top, salt a little and toss well.

Serves 2

buon appetite
