Ok, so here is the last of our little taste testing, we rounded our lunch out with this Warm Arugula Salad. It was so tasty and super easy. What I loved, was the difference a warm vinaigrette makes, it wilts the greens and makes this one a real crowd pleaser. A great alternative for anyone who wants a change from their same old salad.
7oz Arugula (or mixed greens)
6 strips bacon, diced
2 shallots, minced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 TBLs balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup walnuts (or pecans) rough chopped
ground pepper to taste
1.Wash lettuce and set in a bowl aside.
2.In a skillet brown bacon.
3.Add shallots and saute until brown. Add oil to heat through.
4.Splash lettuce with balsamic. Add bacon mixture and toss. The heat of the oil will wilt the lettuce a bit. Garnish with nuts.
Even my picky hubby liked this one, add some grilled chicken and you have a great meal.
