Introduction: Arugula Salad

Arugula salad is a dead simple side dish to make - it's perfect for when you're feeling lazy or would like to feel fancy for a moment. :D

I like arugula much more than lettuce because it had loads more flavor. I make this salad all the time, it's my go-to when I realize all I've planned is to cook some meat and I can't really just serve 2 pounds of meat for dinner. 

Balanced eating is a good thing, haha.

Ingredients:
  • 5-8 oz arugula
  • 1/3 red onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 pear, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 red/orange/yellow bell pepper, sliced thinly
  • salt & pepper
  • soft goat cheese
  • olive oil
  • vinegar (iffn you want)
I only use oil and vinegar on this - I like a red wine vinegar. Drowning this salad in a thick or creamy dressing really ruins it as far as I'm concerned. 

Just slice the pear and veggies, break off some goat cheese and top with salt and pepper. Pour over a little bit of oil and vinegar and mix it all up. If you use a nice room temp goat cheese, it will break down and coat everything, which is lovely. :D

    Rucola is another name by which this peppery treat is called. A lemon oil dressing with thyme chive and s&p to taste, topped with parmesan and toasted sunflower seeds... It's to die for.

    Added "rocket" to the keywords for you, since that's what it's called over here. Confused me so much when I visited to see arugala on the board in Sammie's!

    Ah, I had seen what looked like arugula on the AU and UK Masterchefs, but they didn't call it by the name I knew. Confusing, haha.

    Thanks!

    i ran into this fine leaf last winter and found it to very tasty indeed. Funny you make yours as i did mine except i added some blue cheese crumbles 1 teaspoon topped it off with another teaspoon of raspberry vingerette just a hint you really want to taste this leaf it has a very zingy flavor alone adding the raspberry only enhanced the flavor of this leaf. unfortunatly i have been unable to find it again .
