Parmesan Arugula Salad

Arugula Parmesan Salad
Note: 

This extremely simple salad is a variation of a salad from the fabulous Trattoria Grappolo in Santa Ynez, CA.  I remember the amazement I felt that the a few simple flavors could bring such a rich experience to my taste buds.

Tools needed: 
big salad bowl
Time: 
15 minutes
Ingredients: 
7 oz washed arugula
1/2 cup shredded parmesan
1 1/2 tbs olive oil
1/2 tbs balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
freshly ground pepper
1 cup chopped roma or halved cherry tomatoes (optional)
Directions: 
  1. Place dried or spun arugula in salad bowl.  Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar.  Toss to coat arugula evenly.
  2. Use fingers to sprinkle with salt.  Toss again.
  3. Sprinkle with parmesan and tomatoes.  Toss again before serving. 
  4. Grind pepper over to taste.

 

Serves: 
4-6
