Balsamic vinegar

1½ Tbsp

Uncooked shallot(s)

2 tsp, minced

Table salt

½ tsp

Black pepper

¼ pinch, freshly ground

1 large, beefsteak, ripe but firm, cut into wedges

Arugula

6 cup(s), baby variety

2 large, ripe but firm, sliced

Whole milk ricotta cheese

¼ cup(s), crumbled

Basil

¼ Tbsp, leaves, torn

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine oil, vinegar, shallots, salt and pepper; add tomato and toss to combine. Let stand 5 minutes for flavours to blend.
