Sometimes we are on top of it. On top of weeding, harvesting, eating fresh from the backyard and other times life gets in the way. I love Arugula but time got away from me and it got a bit bitter and over run. DKITW calls its pepper lettuce and the flavor can get too strong for everyday use.
I was feeling sad over feeling like I wasted a forest of Arugula when I remembered our incredibly lovely French friend. Who is also a chef. On a private yacht. And who taught me a thing or two about bitter arugula salad. Here is her best salad on earth as voted by me.
Arugula + feta cheese + walnuts + lightly drizzled in honey = amazing
The bitterness of Arugula is matched perfectly with the rich feta and sweet honey. I die it is so good.
She also adds a small amount of Basil to regular summer salads and can I just say- it is inspired. More hot French cooking tips after I see her again. Happy Holidays!
