Now I’m no herbivore, but arugula always keeps me coming back for more. The nutty, peppery taste is so much more stimulating than your typical iceberg or romaine. I wasn’t always this way. In fact, I detested salad as a kid. What Chinese tike wants cold veggies when they can have fresh, hot stir-fry?
Baby Arugula Salad
with cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, prosciutto, mozzarella, basil, almonds and black pepper in balsamic vinegar & olive oil
It’s everything I’d want in a salad–refreshing, crunchy, nutty, smoky, herby, tangy…also I may just be a tad obsessed with prosciutto and basil. Maybe I got some Italian in me?
