Arugula Parmesan Pine Nut Salad

Delicious, goes with everything, and the easiest salad you’ll ever make!


  • 3-4 handfuls fresh baby arugula
  • 2 tablespoons freshly-grated or shaved Parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts toasted
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional


  • Gently toast the pine nuts over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, if not already toasted.
  • Add arugula and Parmesan to a large salad bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice, and sprinkle with black pepper and red pepper flakes. Add the pine nuts and toss to combine. Serve immediately.


  • Toasting the pine nuts is optional but adds amazing flavor. You can buy them pre-toasted to save time!
  • I make this at least once a week and literally never measure our the ingredients. Once you make it a couple times you'll do it from memory and feel, too! Just remember, go light on the olive oil and lemon juice especially at first -- you can always add more but you can't take away. but the proportions above give you an idea to get started.
