Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
Plate & Pitchfork in Portland, Oregon, organizes farm dinners at which this delightfully simple salad is often featured. It's great with grilled tuna. You can serve the leftover dressing over pasta, steamed new potatoes, or grilled chicken.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups baby arugula leaves
  • 1/2 cup diagonally cut celery
  • 1/4 cup almonds, toasted and chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup Lemon-Anchovy Dressing
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Add 1/3 cup Lemon-Anchovy Dressing; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve immediately.

  2. Wine note: Arugula, celery, and lemons all contain green flavors. A wine that works well with this trio—and won't be undone by the anchovies—is the outrageously fresh Sauvignon Republic 2007 from the Russian River Valley of California ($18). —Karen MacNeil
