Arugula Salad with Lemon Dressing and Parmesan

I love arugula, and I usually don’t use it alone as a salad, but I recently discovered arugula salad with lemon and parmesan. What an amazing combination!

I also recently learned how easy it is to grow arugula. Someone gave me some arugula plants, and now I have arugula growing everywhere! It is nice to have some growing fresh at all times.


1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons EVOO
Parmesan cheese (shaved or shredded)
Salt & pepper to taste


Whisk together the lemon juice and olive oil.

I also add in the salt and sometimes pepper to the dressing.

Toss with the arugula.

Sprinkle with parmesan shavings, either in the serving dish or on each bowl of salad.

    One thing I use a lot on my salads are lemons, they really do make your salads flavorable and juicy. I must say I have never tried arugula, now you have piqued my interest to give it a try.

    I love arugula but my husband hates it so I may have to remove it. But I like this idea for light summer meals, it looks fresh.

    I love arugala for a salad base. It has just the right bite to it. Lemon juice on there would make me happy.
