Winter Salad: Arugula and Parmesan

This is the first in a series of winter salads. Once a week or so I'll be trying something new and sharing it. Winter salads can be interesting! They differ from summer salad in that they don't live and die for tomatoes. I love tomatoes. But I do not eat them in the winter.

Today: arugula dressed with olive oil, salt, pepper, and curls of parmesan cheese. Leaving the vinegar OUT is the secret to a good arugula salad. The oil tempers the bite of the greens.

I actually went on to add an avocado and a tangerine to this and called it my lunch. It powered me through a seven-hour painting day.

That looks good Anna. Thanks for the tip on oil only with rocket (arugla), I'll look forward to your winter salad series.

I like this winter one from Sarah Britton's site -- it may give you some ideas.

These are two of my husband's favorite ingredients...arugula and parmesan! I will have to pack him a similar salad for next week!

A seven hour painting day is a marathon indeed! I am guessing Daisy must be pretty independent with school. I am working with Finn with that end in mind..I already multitask a little during school, but not much!!

I'm looking forward to your weekly post on winter salads. It isn't always easy to eat clean in the winter.
