This is a simple salad but you will find yourself serving it often – with chicken, fish, sandwiches or maybe just by itself. Add some crostini with goat cheese for a nice treat!

2-3 cups arugula leaves (organic, if possible), washed and dried
1 cup fresh, local tomatoes (the tiny sungolds are my favorites but any sweet, fresh tomato will be fine), coarsely chopped
2 T finely chopped sweet onion
3 T olive oil
1 T vinegar (champagne, chardonnay or red-wine vinegar will work fine)
1 t dijon mustard
coarse sea salt (such as fleur de sel) and pepper, to taste

You will also need:
Medium mixing bowl or salad bowl
Glass for mixing salad dressing
Salad tongs

Place the arugula and the tomatoes into the bowl.

In the glass, mix together the onion, olive oil, vinegar and mustard. Add a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper. Mix well until you have a nice consistency. Pour over the salad and serve immediately.

Serves 2-3.
