The flavors on the simple dish appeal to many palates. Arugula with a citrus vinaigrette is a perfect marriage, and on this dish, it balances the savory flavors from the meat and cheese. Arugula also holds up nicely than other greens. Mods: 1) I make half of each batch without ham for vegetarian guests, 2) I have grilled the bread in a heavy skillet instead over charcoal which makes this an even simpler recipe to prepare. 3) in a pinch, you can also use cheddar but it's not as decadent as brie. This is a lovely spring dish for guests, or for a simple dinner with the Hub. Pair with a chilled Reisling.
