Yum. That's all I can say about this. I love sharp, strong flavors together. This sounds perfect.


I wish I could pick my own Arugula. I've bought it twice this week and it has been disappointing both times.


I love the name of your salad! ;)
I make a similar salad and sometimes add a touch of honey to offset some of the bitterness.


There is a book called 'Because it is bitter, and because it is my heart' and I could never imagine where the title came I know. Thanks for the enlightenment!


This salad looks delicious. The bitter sweet descriptiveness - a bad mood salad indeed! The parmagiano is always an excellent touch.


Kalyn - probably one of my favorite salads of all time. Very sharp and strong. Enjoy!

Barbara -- happily we had a farmer's market not too long ago and the local farmers had beautiful baby arugula.

Geneve -- oddly enough by the time I finish making it I'm never in a bad mood anymore. :-)

Kate -- happy to help out!

Don -- oh the cheese is the best; its tanginess is a nice offset to the bitterness.


I love it--food to match a mood. It looks lovely.


i just found this post, and i have to tell you that i love your writing...and that i have been addicted to a similar version i adapted from barefoot contessa just recently...if only i had been reading your blog sooner i would have been enjoying this for much longer!!!
