arugula and zucchini salad

I first time I had this salad was at one of my favorite restaurants in Boston, La Morra. When it came to the table it was so simple, yet the taste was so much more than that. In a salad with so few ingredients, it’s important to use only best ingredients you can and here, keeping it simple really works. It’s really light and tossed simply with a little of the lemon vinaigrette is all you need to dress it.

Lemon Vinaigrette
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

4 ounces arugula
1/4 zucchini, cut into thin rounds
Parmigiano-Reggiano, for serving

In a medium bowl, combine mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Slowly pour in olive oil, whisking to emulsify. Add arugula and zucchini and gently toss to combine. Transfer to a plate and top with freshly shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Serves 1.
