Pesto Arugula Salad

DSC_0135This salad is one of my husband’s all-time favorite eats. It is simple, flavorful, and pairs well with a variety of dishes. But it can easily stand as the main course if you’re feeling the need for something light and refreshing.

For this particular dinner I served it with herb roasted chicken, but it would also pair well with any type of pasta. I can also imagine it as a delicious side for grilled fish this coming summer.

This salad is one I don’t usually serve to our boys as the arugula can be bitter, especially to growing palates. If they asked, of course I’d share, but why listen to a chorus of whining when you can have the entire delicious dish to yourselves. 🙂

My mouth is watering just thinking about this salad, and I think we’re going to put it on the menu for tomorrow! I hope that you have a fabulous Wednesday!!

Ingredients

16 oz. Arugula

1-2 Tbsp. Pesto (to taste)

1 c. Cherry Tomatoes

3/4 c. (6 oz.) Fresh Mozzarella

Place the arugula in a serving dish. Toss it with the pesto to coat. Slice the tomatoes and the mozzarella balls in half, and add them to the salad. That’s a wrap!
