Savenor’s is one of my favorite shops in Cambridge. It has a huge array of fresh and exotic meat, fresh produce and other treats you don’t find at your grocery store. It’s also where Julia Child used to shop (a plus!). I made a quick trip Saturday afternoon in hopes of reinvigorating my cooking passion, which clearly departed last week.
The first meat case had the most succelent looking pork chops and I couldn’t resist. I decided to make the spicy pork chops I tried out a few weeks ago (recipe here) since they were so moist and delectable.
But since you don’t really want to read that I remade something, I decided to try out a new salad. I’ve recently acquired a taste for arugula. The first time I tried arugula I’m pretty sure I thought it was disgusting. It’s not every day you eat a leafy green that’s peppery and pungent all in one.
Here’s what you’ll need –
- 4 cups of arugla
- 1 tbsp vinegar
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- pinch salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Combine the vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add olive oil in a stream and continue mixing until combined (this may take a few minutes, you don’t want your dressing to separate). Add arugla and toss to coat.
I used leftovers the next day and added asparagus, cucumber, pepper and cherry tomatoes for tasty lunch!
