Relating to summer time salads, I’m continuously pushing to discover completely different flavors and textures. This arugula salad occurs to characteristic a favourite mixture of mine: a romesco potato combine. The smoky sauce brings the get together to this salad, each as a coating for the potatoes but additionally as a little bit of dressing.

My favourite is to toss the salad collectively whereas the potatoes are barely heat. The nice and cozy potatoes assist to melt the goat cheese, creating a tremendous coating for the arugula. After all, if heat salads aren’t your factor, you possibly can at all times combine the potatoes in when cool.

Better of all, this salad showcases so most of the objects I really like from native farms: arugula (Jayleaf), potatoes (River Canine Farms– one among my favorites), walnuts (Full Stomach– additionally wonderful), goat cheese (Laura Chenel’s), and olive oil (California Olive Ranch). What higher option to showcase CA Grown.
