Emma's Arugula Salad with Marinated Tomatoes
Prep Time: 45 minutes (10 minutes hands-on time)
Meal Notes: This simple, but incredibly tasty salad makes a meal out of any main dish (ex: Rice Soup with Chicken or Pan Broiled Steaks.). It’s become a dinnertime staple in my home, but it also travels well pre-assembled for potlucks (as pictured).
