Arugula Pine Nut Salad

Nourish Restaurant in Sequim, WANourish, Sequim’s new garden-to-plate restaurant and gathering place, is featuring a series of meals created using items from Nash’s farm share boxes each week. This recipe highlights arugula.

2 bunches arugula, washed well, large stems removed

Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar

Tear arugula into bite-sized pieces, toss all ingredients together and serve.


Nourish Tip: Arugula, also known as rocket, has a nice peppery flavor. It’s a good source of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K as well as B-complex vitamins. Overall, it’s a great anti-oxidant.

Nourish Tip: Use a potato peeler to shave from a block of Parmesan cheese.

Nourish Tip: Pine nuts can be expensive, so try using sunflower seeds in their place.
