Here’s how you do it…

Ingredients Collage - Arugula Salad

You’ll need Wild Arugula, Grape Tomatoes, a regular garden-sized Tomato, and raw Pignolias (Pine Nuts). I used a Lemon Boy tomato from our yard, which added a nice yellow color to the salad. If you can’t find Grape Tomatoes, any type of mini tomato will work just fine.


Build Your Arugula Salad

Toast the Pignolias in a skillet with Olive Oil, Coarse Sea Salt, and freshly ground Pepper. Cut the Grape tomatoes in half diagonally, and chop the garden tomato. Place the Arugula in a bowl, then the tomatoes, top with the toasted pignolias, and toss.
