  • 5-6 ounces arugula, washed, dried, (and torn if necessary)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a serving bowl, drizzle the arugula with ½ the oil, ½ the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of the Parmesan cheese and then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Gently turn the arugula over once from the bottom of the bowl and add the rest of the oil, lemon, another tablespoon of the cheese and sprinkle again with salt and pepper.
  3. Toss gently until well-mixed and taste for seasoning. Sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of cheese over the salad and serve.
