It's all about the dressing in this super-quick salad: If you like your food spicy, use it generously. You may want to taste the dressing as you make it and adjust the quantity of harissa accordingly, though, since the heat varies by brand.
Serves 4 to 6 (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)

3 cups arugula
2 cans (15 oz. each) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 celery stalk, sliced thinly diagonally
1/3 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
1 pound large peeled cooked shrimp (26 to 30 per lb.)
3 to 4 tbsp. harissa*
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


Total: 10 Minutes

Put arugula, beans, celery, parsley, and shrimp in a large bowl. Mix remaining ingredients in a small bowl and serve on the side to add to salad.

*Find harissa, a North African chile-and-spice paste, in the international foods aisle.
