Arugula Salad with Lemon Parmesan Dressing

Arugula is one of our favorite salad greens because it’s so versatile -it’s great with just lemon and olive oil or to top off a sandwich or you can toss it with some shrimps or fish and make it a full meal!  Arugula has a slightly bitter, mustardy, peppery flavour and it’s just so fresh tasting! While it is true that for some it might take them a while to realize how great this green leafy vegetable is, we promise that if you combine it with our lemon parmesan dressing, even the pickiest eaters will fall in love with this salad! Here’s the recipe for you:

  1. I love arugula salads too! The pepperiness goes great with seafood. Your dressing sounds delicious, can’t wait to try it.

    And thanks for the comment on my blog because now I’ve found your blog! Can’t wait to see what you make next : )

  2. The flavor of arugula is amazing, isn’t it? And it combines so well with shrimp – they make such a lovely pairing. This is such a nice and simple dish, but I’ll bet the flavor is tremendous. Good stuff – thanks.

  3. Totally with you. Love arugula and shrimp, together and separate! I have to keep shrimp in the freezer all the time. Adore your simple salad dressing to go with this, too.
