What goes better with a big green salad than a big glass of chardonnay? Nothing!! It’s called balance.
Until about 2 weeks ago, I had NEVER purchased arugula before. I’ve had it at restaurants and friends houses, but never used it at home. To be completely honest, I grabbed it on accident during one of my speed grocery shopping trips. I was originally really pissed when I realized it wasn’t my normal mixed greens.
But, I don’t waste food. I will find a way to incorporate it into meals. Especially fresh produce. You can’t waste good food like that.
Since, I’ve added it to my morning eggs + every salad combo imaginable + on sandwiches. Verdict: Love it!
Here’s an arugula combo that was heavenly. I’m not a big fruit person, but even I was way into this one. I will be serving this next time I host a brunch or dinner. It’s a keeper!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 cups arugula
- 1 honey crisp apple, thinly sliced
- 1/3 cup blue cheese crumbles
- 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
- 5 slices prosciutto
- 3 tablespoons lemon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
- salt + pepper
Once again, I grabbed all these ingredient at Trader Joe’s. I think they should give me some kind of kick back or something.
Here’s what you do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat.
Bake prosciutto for 10 minutes, till crispy. Break into pieces.
Add arugula + apple + blue cheese + pomegranate + prosciutto pieces.
In a mason jar add olive oil + balsamic + salt + pepper. Shake well. Drizzle over salad.
So easy + so good. I paired my arugula salad with a big glass of chardonnay + grilled chicken and it was a hit!
Had the leftovers for lunch sans the chard, unfortunately.
What’s your favorite way to use arugula? Any good recipes? Please share, since I currently have 2 tubs in my fridge 🙂
Have a great Thursday friends!
