Simple Arugula Salad

 … the simplest of ingredients makes the most delicious meals.

Arugula is sometimes hard to work with in salads, because it doesn’t always work with your average salad dressings. So I like to keep it simple! Literally.. only 5 ingredients, and two of them are salt and pepper! When you’re working with arugula, less is totally more. It has so much flavor on it’s own! Keep it Paleo and Vegetarian, or add some chicken and fresh parmesan cheese shavings to go all out.  Once you get these basics down, you can play around and experiment to see what you come up with! Let the fun beginnnnn.

INGREDIENTS

Arugula

Olive Oil

Fresh Lemon

Salt

Pepper

Sliced Almonds (optional)

Fresh Parmesan (optional)

Grilled Chicken (optional)

1. Grab a few handfuls of arugula and put it into a bowl.

2. Drizzle some olive oil all over the arugula. Start with a little at first, because you can always add more later!

3. Squeeze about half of a half lemon. Again, you can add more later if needed!

4. Add some salt and pepper over the top layer of arugula. Sprinkle less salt then paper.

5. Mix it all up and taste!

6. If it’s too lemony, add some more olive oil.

7. If it’s a little bland, add more salt and pepper!

8. Sliced almonds are a fun touch, but not necessary.

9. Top with some Grilled Chicken to make it a meal, or just have this as a side salad to another dish!

Voilààààààààà. Four ingredients and you’ve created a masterpiece!

Bev totally approves of this one.
