There is nothing better than arugula tossed with a simple and easy balsamic vinaigrette. It’s understated but classy, and can be put together quickly. Perfect as an appetizer or a quick light lunch/snack and easily customizable: tomatoes and shaved parmesan as photographed, or strawberries and pecans, figs and walnuts, goat cheese and cranberries…
I think I just made myself really hungry! LOL
Seriously though! Super simple and classy. ALSO: I called it basic balsamic vinaigrette for a reason! It is also customizable with the addition of minced garlic, shallots, dijon mustard, honey… so many options, experiment!
