Simple Arugula Salad

This small salad represents the very first harvest from our vegetable garden!  I harvested just enough arugula to make myself a salad for lunch.

The salad couldn’t be more simple to make.  Add a little lemon juice and salt to the arugula and toss together.  Drizzle a little olive oil, toss to coat, and serve.

While I didn’t use any exact measurements, I roughly followed this recipe from Epicurious:  Arugula with Lemon and Olive Oil.  Simple and delicious!

I haven’t posted any garden updates for a while, but a lot has been happening!  MANY tomato plants have been planted, as well as peppers, cabbage and zucchini.  Hopefully I will have some pictures to share soon.

  3. I have just picked my first bunch of arugula from my garden and so enjoy the fresh peppery taste! So nice to have your own produce growing in your yard…Such simple pleasures!

  4. That arugula is looking lovely, Karen! Your garden must be doing well. Yay! We’ve been enjoying our harvest of fresh veggies as well. Which reminds me I should update the blog with a recent photo of the crop. Hope you’re well and staying cool!
