Tomato and Arugula salad

Arugula is almost like mustard… it’s kind of spicy but not in the hot chili pepper way. It’s often prepared uncooked as a salad green. Loaded with vitamins A an C, and it has very few calories. Perfect for beauty 🙂

My mom loves the combination of tomato and arugula. She often makes this salad when the green and tomato are in season, a lot during the summer. With an Italian twist to it, she makes an easy olive oil, balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

Personally, I like it when the tomato is cold, so I keep in the fridge before serving. A bit of extra salt on the tomato also brings out the sweetness of the tomato.

Yes, the serving spoon’s handle is cherry tomato…
