Arugula Salad

 Arugula Salad

Salad with arugula. The key to success with a simple salad like this arugula Parmesan salad is using the best ingredients, which in this case means using Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (true aged Italian Parmesan), and keeping the dressing simple, à la minute, which means pouring the acid and oil directly on the salad greens. Remember the classic vinaigrette proportion of three parts oil to one part acid.
