Tom basically thinks arugula is the best thing since sliced bread (actually, he likes arugula way more than sliced bread). He prefers I only use it raw so that it retains all of its peppery bite. I love it, too, so I can’t say I blame him.

I came across this recipe recently and had all the ingredients to make it, except the endive (but, conveniently, the next day was grocery day). This salad provides a great combination of peppery arugula, salty cheese, and a zing from the lemon juice. Pine nuts add crunch and, while pricey, are a favorite of mine. I try to keep some in the freezer so I can use them in things like this but if you don’t have any and don’t want to buy them, I think slivered almonds or even some toasted pepitas would be great here, too. (And yes, I totally over-toasted mine. Those are the breaks when you have to chase down/clean up after an almost 2-year old who pulled everything off the counter while  you turned your back for 4 seconds.)
