Arugula Salad and Figs
2 to 3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 - 1/2 pound arugula
6-8 figs, quartered
1/4 cup toasted nuts, such as walnuts, pine nuts, or almonds
1/4 cup feta or Stilton, crumbled
Whisk together the oil, juice, and salt and pepper in a salad bowl. Add the arugula and figs and fold gently to combine. Divide the salad and top each serving with nuts and cheese.
You can also make arugula pesto, just replace the basil with arugula.
