Warm Bean & Arugula Salad

Warm Bean & Arugula Salad

1 Review
From: EatingWell Magazine, February/March 2006

In this salad, saucy, lemony beans stand in for a warm dressing, coating the arugula and wilting it just a bit to mellow its naturally assertive character. Add a piece of warm crusty bread and a glass of crisp white wine to make this an excellent light supper.

I have made this a few times now and I LOVE it! I also like to add a can of Muir Glen Fire Roasted tomatoes, and while my boyfriend was on the Engine 2 Diet I made a vegan version by just omitting the prosciutto! Deliciouso!
