Arugula Salad

Just a quick post to tell you about a new recipe up on everyday dish. It's a delicious arugula salad with a preserved lemon vinaigrette. Absolutely divine, and is from Chef Derek Hanson at Nutshell restaurant in Portland Oregon.

Preserved lemons are very easy to make (just do a Google search), but it is basically sliced lemons layered in a jar with Kosher salt, and left to sit (refrigerated) for about a month. I regularly have a jar going in my fridge, because they add a fabulous spark of flavor to recipes. You can buy preserved lemons too. You really should give it a try!

Hi Julie! I'm absolutely sure that I've never seen or heard of these greens before. I'm Jamaican. What else would that dressing taste yummy on?

oooh, that looks and sounds yummy! all last year I paired arugula with the amazing Liquid Gold dressing from Becoming Vegan.

This sounds like a fresh alternative to enjoy all summer!

I've never had preserved lemons before, but I'm sure they are similar to Indian lemon pickle, which I adore. I have a recipe I like where the lemons are actually boiled and then added to salt and spices so they are ready to go straight away. I just read on Hannah's blog that y'all filmed two segments with her. I can't wait to see them, and I really enjoyed the one that Melisser filmed too. Excellent work!

I will give it a try! Never even though about having my own preserved lemons before. Lovely. Thanks, Julie, as usual! ; )
