I love this simple arugula salad – the peppery arugula, the nuttiness from the toasted pine nuts, and the zing from the sherry vinegar make a nice combination.  This is great served with a grilled cheese or pizza!

Arugula Salad

Arugula Salad

Serves 2

Ingredients:

Arugula, washed and patted dry

1 tablespoon pine nuts

1 tablespoon sherry vinegar

2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (good quality)

Sea salt flakes (Maldon)

Directions:

Toast the pine nuts in toaster oven for 2 minutes or until lightly browned (be careful not to burn!)  Set aside to cool.  In a small bowl prepare sherry vinaigrette: combine 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar and a pinch of sea salt flakes; whisk in 2 1/2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.  Grab three handfuls of arugula and toss into a medium mixing bowl.  Add pine nuts and as much sherry vinaigrette as you desire.  Toss and season to taste with more salt, if needed.
