 ARUGULA SALAD recipe

I don’t know the history of salad or where this brilliant “dish” (if you will) got its start but I’m really glad it became a thing.  There are so many wonderful ways to make a good salad with endless ingredients and methods that come together to create a salad that pleases just about every palate on the planet.  One of my favorite fall and winter salads happens to be is this Arugula and Parmesan Salad inspired by my Tamari, Garlic, and Ginger Mushrooms Salad created by my friend Laurie, creator of NxtNutrio and owner of Basimo Beach Cafe in Clearwater Florida.

My favorite part of this salad are the mushrooms.  The flavor is a bit pungent because they are marinated in garlic, ginger, and Tamari and balances out nicely with the peppery arugula and the gritty Parmigiano-Reggiano. The flavor of these mushrooms are incredibly versatile and pair perfectly with grilled steak or fish, in a stirfry or topped with mashed potatoes and gravy.  The possibilities are truly endless.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinary.butterfly on Instagram or @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest, or by using the hashtag #culinarybutterfly on Facebook
