This light salad can be a great summer appetizer. It’ll amaze you with its simplicity and taste combinations. Arugula with its specific spiciness, caramelized peaches with a creamy aftertaste, and rough parmesan.

Even this way the salad looks complete and very tasty, but here is where the vinaigrette dressing with a soy sauce comes into play. And it changes everything. It spreads on every arugula leaf and enriches with more of taste diversity and changes it into something incredible.

The recipe is very fast and easy. So I don’t see why to distract you with its description. You’ll prepare it quickly and try yourself rather than read all this.

Add 4 tsp of spicy mustard. Grate ¼ of sweet onion ( or use 1 shallot if possible) and 1 clove of garlic, add to the sauce.

Add 75 ml of vegetable oil and 120 ml of virgin olive oil. Finely shake the jar in order to mix all the ingredients.

This sauce can be stored in the fridge for 3 months (you’ll have a half of a jar left), don’t forget to shake before use.


STEP 2. PREPARE ALL THE INGREDIENTS

Take 200 g of arugula and cut off the stalks, in order to have 1 cm to leaves. If its the earlier one (the leaves are small) you don’t need to do that.

Fill a big bowl of water and soak the arugula. I’m using a bowl from the salad dryer, that will use then to dry it.

2 peaches cut in half and remove the pit.

STEP 4. MAKE A SALAD

Wash the arugula in the bowl and remove the water.

Now dry the leaves. If you don’t have a salad dryer, use the paper towels. Arugula leaves should be dry, or dressing will mix with water and simply slide down on the bottom.

Place the arugula into a big bowl (you can use the same where you’ve mixed peaches with sugar), add peaches there, and a half of dressing.
