        Yes, I think I am going to make this over the weekend.

    1. I had this super simple but delicious salad at an Italian place in Germany once - dressed with lemon oil, squeeze of lemon, and lots of fresh ground black pepper.

      Toss with grated parmesan & chopped poached shrimp (since you generally can't get the fairly small shrimp in brine you can get in Yurp on this side of the Atlantic).


      1. I have a couple:
        - walnuts, goat cheese, roasted beets, avocado, balsamic vinaigrette.
        - pecans, blue cheese, peaches, red onion, vinaigrette

          Fab recipe, CG! Nothing like goat cheese, roasted beets and arugula.

            That's pretty much what I like to do, with the beets marinated in some red wine vinegar, honey, olive oil and salt and the liquid used as a dressing. Also, I add a handful of candied pecans. It is truly divine.

        2. What we do is to make a fairly lemony dressing with olive oil, and then put sliced sirloin on top of the arugula, and the meat juices mix with the dressing. It is absolutely delicious, and the essence of summer cooking for us. Fresh farm arugula, which is so different and so much better than anything you can get in the market, and a beautiful piece of charcoal grilled sirloin sliced on top. Summer, where are you?

            This sounds delicious!! Thanks for the reminder... I've had something like this before and it's definitely the lemony/olive oil dressing that brings it up a notch.

              How could ya go wrong with meat juices! Ya can't.

            2. I like this Arugula Salad with Shaved Parmesan and Balsamic Vinaigrette. I add toasted pine nuts to it.
