Baby Arugula Salad with Lemon Dijon Dressing

Baby Arugula Salad with Lemon Dijon Dressing

Arugula is certainly one of my very favorite greens. It's so very versatile. Delicious in a salad as well as holding up well to heavier dishes like pestos, grains, and pastas. But in early spring, when the baby arugula is in it's prime, I love showcasing it in a salad. The fresh lemon cuts the tiny bit of bite that this green has, and the Dijon lens a smooth and sweeter flavor to the dish. Topped with some fresh Parmesan (a fresh cut block will lend you the smoothest flavor - the texture you are going for here) and you've got yourself an awesome spring salad for any table.
