A Reminder That No-Frills Can Still Be Fantastic
This arugula salad epitomizes Italian cooking: uncomplicated directions, fresh ingredients, minimal fuss. It's a breeze to make, too; just whisk olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper; then add bunches of peppery arugula, slices of tomato and some shaved, sharp-tasting Parmigiano-Reggiano. Crusty bread optional (but highly recommended).
