Eat Your Heart Out Ashton

Inspired by a recipe in a recent issue of Self Magazine, I threw together quite a delicious Insalata di Rucola (Arugula Salad) for dinner. According to the magazine,
Dolce Enoteca e Ristorante, an Italian restaurant in Hollywood partially funded by Ashton Kutcher and frequented by other A-listers, serves up this exact recipe. Except I made mine for, what, like 2 bucks?

Here's the recipe in case you wanna get in on the action:

1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 clove garlic, peeled
1 tbsp Italian parsley
1 tsp capers
1/4 extra-virgin olive oil
4 cups fresh arugula
2 oz parmesan (I used a little more; 2 oz. ain't enough)

*Place lemon juice, garlic, parsley and capers in a blender and puree until smooth.
*Slowly add oil and blend until emulsified.
*Toss arugula with dressing.
*Shave parmesan with cheese plane or veggie peeler and top salad with cheese.

*I tossed some whole capers into my salad to add some extra zing.

How long will this dressing keep in the fridge? I'm a bachelor, cooking for a party of 1. I don't think I can eat 4 cups of arugula in one sitting.

Hmm, I'm not sure since we ate it all in one meal. But I'm sure you can just cut the measurements in half. =)

Looks good. Except instead of eating just that, I'd squeeze it into a hamburger. And then I'd eat the hamburger.
