Recipe Notes

  • To make a larger batch of the dressing, simply double or triple the amounts and store it in the fridge for 1 to 2 weeks. This dressing can also do double duty as a marinade for chicken or thick, firm-fleshed fish.
  • Any variety of spring lettuce such as bibb or red leaf can replace the arugula.
