Serve this simple, refreshing side salad with grilled or roasted chicken breasts or pork, pan-seared fish, or sautéed shrimp. You’ll need 1 lemon to yield enough zest and juice for this salad.

Ingredients

Arugula

1 cup(s), lightly packed

Uncooked zucchini

1 medium, sliced

Lemon zest

2 tsp

Fresh lemon juice

1 Tbsp

Olive oil

1 tsp

Table salt

¼ tsp

Black pepper

¼ tsp, coarse variety

Basil

2 Tbsp, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Toss together the arugula and zucchini in a serving bowl.
  2. To make the dressing, whisk together all the remaining ingredients except the basil in a small bowl. Drizzle the dressing over the arugula mixture and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle with the basil.
  3. Yields about 1 cup per serving.

Notes

To avoid having to wash another bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients in the serving bowl, and then toss in the arugula and zucchini. Feel free to toss in more fresh basil if you’ve got it.
