This ain't rocket science, but I eat this salad so often that I thought I should share it with you guys, my Internet Friends! It's simple, simple, simple, and really doesn't require a recipe. With a few, fresh ingredients, you will have a salad you can whip up for lunch all week long. I take peppery arugula, creamy avocado, and salty shaved Parmesan and top it with lemon and good olive oil! I know, I sound like Ina when I say "good olive oil" but it really makes a difference (I usually have two types of olive oil on hand, a cheaper brand that I cook with and a nicer brand for dressings or drizzling). Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and pepper and you have the tastiest, healthiest salad.
It also felt appropriate to share on Earth Day. Since it's so green and leafy.
By the way, I had a different plan for today's post, but as soon as I learned of Prince's death yesterday I was pretty much useless for the rest of the day. I wandered around my house, forcing my kids to listen to his music, and thought about growing up in Minnesota where his music was born. So many important memories were accompanied by his songs, the least of them being my high school graduation in, yes, 1999. It feels weird knowing he took his last breath yesterday, but his music will always be a humongous part of this world!
