Warm Arugula Salad

 

Active: 15 Minutes      Serves 5

 

Ingredients

 

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.
