Arugula Feta Cheese Salad

A couple fresh ways to serve up spicy arugula–one of the garden’s first-fruits.

  • Make a bed of fresh arugula leaves.
  • Top with fresh fruit of some sort (watermelon)
  • Onions, green onions or garlic scapes
  • Feta cheese
  • Caramelized pecans (optional)
  • Make a dressing with:
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Drizzle over top.  The dressing will be enough for 2 – 3 plates.

Variation:

  • Make a bed of fresh arugula leaves.
  • Place 1/2 cup cooked rice or coucous on top.
  • Place one serving of pan fried fresh BC Snapper (or fish of choice)
  • Top with fresh basil, a few chopped radishes, or chopped garlic scapes.
  • Make a dressing with:
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp fresh ground ginger (optional but delicious!)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Drizzle over top.
