It's me, the Silliest

This is my blog of recipes. I like "eating the rainbow" as well as globe-trotting through food. I totally dig heady local produce and local fresh meats.

Arugula Pear Salad

The sweet, soft, grainy pear dulls the spicy peppery arugula perfectly! The nuts give it some necessary heartiness and the lemon brightens and combines everything.

3 C packed arugula
1 bosc pear, sliced
Handful of walnuts
1 TBSP capers

2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1/4 C olive oil
2 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp oregano
1 garlic glove (grated on a micro plane)
1/4 onion (grated on micro plane)
Healthy amount of fresh parsley
1/4 C freshly grated Romano cheese

Clean the arugula and combine the top 4 ingredients.

Whisk the vinegar and the oil together and then stir in the last 6 ingredients.

Pour dressing over salad and toss and serve!
