Peppery arugula tossed with nutty chick peas, pasta, sun dried tomatoes, shaved parmesan and balsamic vinegar create a simple yet delicious main dish salad – perfect for lunch or dinner. Portions are large, loaded with fiber and very satisfying. A few tips to make this simple salad fantastic – buy baby arugula, it has a milder peppery flavor. Use extra virgin olive oil, and a really good aged balsamic vinegar and most importantly use a premium imported parmesan such as Parmigiano Reggiano for optimum results.
