Arugula Pineapple Salad

  • Serves8
  • DifficultyEasy
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
4 cups washed arugula
peeled fresh pineapple
? cup pine nuts, lightly toasted
3 ounces Piavé cheese (an Italian cheese with the texture of Parmesan, but a lighter, fruity taste)

For dressing, whisk balsamic vinegar with mustard. Slowly pour in olive oil while whisking. Season to taste.

If dressing seems thick, whisk in a tablespoon or 2 of water (this allows the dressing to coat the arugula without weighing them down).

To assemble the salad, arrange arugula on a platter. Remove core from pineapple and slice as thinly as possible (on a mandolin is best). Arrange pineapple over arugula.

Slice red onion and arrange on salad. Sprinkle pine nuts over. With a vegetable peeler or cheese knife, pull curls or thin shards of Piavé over.

Drizzle dressing over, season lightly and serve.
