Pear and Arugula Salad with Parmesan Cheese starts with a bed of arugula and pear, spritzed with olive oil and a sprinkle of toasted walnuts.
Happy Monday everyone. We had an amazing weekend, filled with family time! Today is “On the Lighter Side” here at The Slow Roasted Italian. Every Monday we feature a dish that is low calorie.
Today I bring you an amazing salad. A great combination of flavors and textures that make my mouth sing. The salad starts with a bed of arugula, a peppery green. Laid on top of the arugula is your favorite pear, sweet and soft sliced thinly with a spritz of olive oil over the salad. A sprinkle of toasted walnuts, give a nutty flavor and crunch. Lemon juice squeezed over top, gives it an incredible fresh flavor, with parmesan shavings for a delightful creamy, nutty twist. Topped with fresh ground black pepper.
This salad is amazing, great as a side or add your favorite protein and call it a meal!!! This is fantastic with some grilled chicken!! A great salad to play with the toppings, goat cheese or blue cheese would be great here too.
