Warm Arugula Salad


Active: 15 Minutes      Serves 5




7 ounces arugula

6 strips of bacon, diced

2 shallots, finely chopped

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped

Ground black pepper to taste



1 - Place arugula in a large salad bowl and set aside


2 - In a medium-size skillet brown the diced bacon 


3 - Add the shallots and sauté with the bacon until shallots are translucent.


4 - Add the extra-virgin olive oil to the pan and heat just until warm.


5 - Pour the oil, bacon & shallot mixture over the arugula, add the balsamic vinegar, and mix well. The heat from the bacon mixture will wilt the arugula - this is what you want!


6 - Add some fresh ground black pepper, top with a sprinkle of walnuts or pecans, and serve immediately.


You can make this a meal by adding diced cooked chicken breasts, shrimp or tofu.
